This quad is going on two years old, and has been through some changes. It's caught between a race and freestyle life at this point. I've tried different pod designs and switched back to carbon plates since my first pod designs kind of sucked. (Hey, I tried) I've gone from a mini to micro cam and designed a mount for it, and antenna is now an AXII stubby. Motors have been upgraded to RDQ 2450kv, flight controller is now an Emax Mini Magnum F4. So yeah, it's pretty much the original frame and RX, but that's about it.

Here's a link to my 3D printed R5LX designs on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/d3c0de/designs?sort=relevant&filter=all&search=R5LX

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..
