After building this ship with left over parts form about 10 different ships over the years!
It is now flying!
I switched out the vtx because the anteena didn't feel like a great placement.
The AKK f3 vtx , seems to be a little heavy, compared to what i had in here before.
But the vtx is more reliable and has more power if i want it.

I also switched out the 1106 motors, for some Emax Eco 1404 3700kv motors.
The 1106's had enough power. I just didn't want to use them on this ship.
I am very happy with the performance!
Flew it this morning with the new changes.
I am happy with the first flight time of 15.33 mins.
Using the Nanotech 4s850mah, battery!
Hopefully, i can get out and slap it around today!
Hope you like it.
I will come back with more info sound on the flights of this babby Long range ship!

I built this to use my 1408 motors. but found out that the 9 x 9 mm mounting spacing was not enough for the emax 1408 3700 kv motors!

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..
