This is my first build, and it took what felt like an eternity for all the parts to arrive and for me to finish the build. But finally, I did.

It's the GEPRC Mark4 HD frame, with T-Motor ESC, FC and Motors. I picked the parts based on other builds using the same frame that I found here on RotorBuilds.

My only gripe with the frame is that it doesn't fit the stock lens protector for the camera. Would have liked to protect it from scratches and damage.

.stl files for the wire guards and capacitor holder can be found below.

I already took it out for a spin and surprisingly, I didn't encounter any issues. I also didn't expect it to fly this smoothly, I'm impressed. Now let's not crash it right away.

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! 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..
