The HappyModel Moblite7 is a fun whoop. However, the hardwood floors in Heads' house really put the structure of the Moblite to the test. And it failed. While superlight and slick looking, the frame and canopy seemed to be this whoop's downfall.

Some comments about the build:

The only things that remain from the original moblite7 are the motors, props and flight controller. The motors are soldered on, this makes changing frames a bit of a hassle. The way around that was to upgrade the frame to something more durable that would be less likely to break. Heavier, obviously, but much more durable. Next thing to tackle was the canopy. What a mess. Flimsy. Could do without it and just glue the camera inbetween the ducts like the original Mr. Shutterbug build. Instead, we'll go for durabilty to match the frame. Canopy was upgraded to a BeeBrain V2. Lightweight, durable. Camera was upgraded to fit better in the canopy. 3D printed TPU mount for carrying a insta360go. Now she's REAL thicc.

Here is a quick rundown of the changes made to the Moblite that morphed it into the absolute unit it is now. Also some short flight clips of insta360go footage and some fpv footage from the BeeBrain canopy.

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..
