My first micro, wanted something that was nice and tiny with enough weight so that I dont have to worry as much about getting tossed around by the wind. Ended up taking a bit of planning to get everything in there but managed to make it fit :). Put my reciver under the flight controller and had just enough room to squeeze my vtx in the back. Had a decent bit of video noise for a bit but who knew that sticky tack worked good for covering the antenna and eliminating it lol. Running a 20x20 board for the runcam split 3 (woul've done the split 4 but couldn't find that one anywhere either) because I couldn't find a complete package with the whoop board but plan on switching over to the whoop board so I can get rid of this anti static foam I've been using sandwiched between the runcam board and my aio. It's definitely working fine just doesn't look as I'd like it to be, and since its a pretty tight build the straps help hold the board in place so it doesnt wiggle around any. Out the gate this guy does not fly well at all on betaflight stock 4.2 pids I would've started on emuflight but it didn't like my reciever for whatever reason, but after much fiddling around with the pids I finally got em to fly really well. still get a little bit of propwash in some instances where im punching out after falling so still room for improvement but it's at a point where it's more then passable. but what I have right now for pid profile is in the pictures. If you're considering a micro....get one they are loads of fun

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..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
