I cheaped out on esc's and run currently on oneshot 125, but she's still a beast.
Edit: running multishot with active dampening, now this thing riiiiiips. also upgraded the build to Steele motors.

crappy PDB with no voltage step down (FC runs on VBAT) so the power filter is a must for the VTX to keep noise out of the video feed.. I bought 4 filters for less thatn $10 on ebay. have it in all of my 5" builds currently.

in my opinion the 2600kv motors are too fast for acro, even with 5x4x3 props. I would stick with 2300. Going to practice racing with this setup, but I currently fly 25deg camera tilt and it's not enough for this rig. been practicing closer to 40 deg. punchouts in a straight line easily hit 70mph. PID tune on these motors is a PITA.

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
