Upgraded an Air Hogs USS Enterprise drone so I can fly it outside. Swapped out the FC/motors/props and went from 1s to 2s (FC/motors are 3s capable). Also added an FPV camera and cut the top prop guard a little to make room for the 3-bladed props. Reconnected all the stock lights to 5v on the FC.

Mounted the 2s 450mah battery with velcro under where the stock 1s lipo was to maintain CG. Kept the stock motor arms and added motor mounts for the EMAX motors.

I think it flies quicker than the modifed XL Millenium Falcon (in process of 6s upgrade). Much more quiet too. Going to upgrade the FPV camera next so I can get some telemetry, right now just going to do short 2-3min flights.

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..
