My new night cruiser I will fly out of my house with a VAS Shapeshifter and a 5.8GHz pepperbox on the roof. What an amazing experiance. It's quiet, under 250g and flight time is excellent. Easily 13 mins of cruising when I fly the 95c 850mah battery down to 14.4V with a little bit of reserve left. 13 minutes give me about 5km/3.1 miles one way in calm winds with the crossfire still at 10mW and excellent video signal. CRSF RX antenna is homemade and tuned exactly to 915MHz with a SWR of 1:07. I can highly reccomend the Lumenier AXII micro antenna. My new favorite 5.8 antenna.

I'll share one in the next few days. A couple of streetlights are plenty for flying in the middle of the night, even hundreds of feet high. Moon light is also enough for flying out in the desert.

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..
