Nice build I like that frame. How do you like the 5000kv motors? Are you running 3 or 4 s with them?

Running 3s. The motors were originally from an Atom 122 that I was never going to run 4s on. This build is heavier so I would run a 4s setup in the future.

3s with the bullnose or 3030 quad props on bg it was pretty fast for 3s, but they cannot handle the 3045 tri-props.

30mm standoffs, the eagle is a bit cramped inside. A friend printed the adapter in PETG. Had a small crash onto sidewalk, not bad, but now have distorted colors. Not sure if it's camera or vtx so I'll be changing out the innova for a vtx03 to rule out the issue.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
