I had a Baby Turtle laying around from a previous project and it needed a place to go. I've seen several other Tadpole builds on here running small HD cams, so I decided to strip down my previous Tadpole build and start over. This was my most challenging build so far - not much space to cram in all the stuff I wanted. It took multiple trys to make sure I had room for everything. I thought about giving up on the baby Turtle several times. In the end, I was happy that I didnt give up on it. Its not pretty but Im sure it will fly just fine.

Its raining too hard right now for a maiden flight, so I will have to post an update once Ive done that.

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..
