This is the second incarnation of this rig, the first was a bit ill concieved and didn't last very long.

Running as light as I can on the rig and running a pretty big 850 4S pack to offset the weight - comes out at 225g flying weight (with the insta 360 Go). The 1404s are quite powerful and this light rig seems to work very well with them so far.

Very ugly pod printed on my ancient Printrbot simple metal. It is functional :)

thanks. It just screams on either prop, I felt the corners were a little more solid with the 4024s. It is so light is just flings whichever way to toss it.

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..
