what? A 4" frame with lifetime warranty and titanium cage that weighs only 45g? This frame really went under the radar.
It's WAY better than the Flywoo micro LR explorer hype which weighs in at 41g before the TPU bits and arm supports because it has dinky little arms.

its just slightly out of date -- it doesn't mount whoop style boards which can be fixed with adapters. The fit of the dji camera into the camera cage is a bit wonky. the nebula pro would be perfect.

my previous analog build came in at 160g with 1408 motors! this digital 6e build is at 192g - wasnt looking for weight savings but i might do a few things now that i know if flies incredibly well.

I picked up this frame used for cheap! it was broken and owner didnt want to bother claiming warranty. pyrodrone takes care of stateside warranty claims and I got a shiny new bottom plate within 4 days, just paid postage.

The motors and vista kit was stolen from the 6s HGLRC Veyron Whoop I picked for a crazy Black Friday deal.

Maiden flight was delightful, virtually no sag with 6s...ok, i did get brain sag with a flight time of 7 minutes with 550mah 75c Betafpv pack.
When 300-450mah 6s packs start getting popular this is going to be a winner

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..
