This is another one of my custom frames. 2.5mm cf, 3in props, all aios (because there is no industry standard smh), 20x20, and 16x16. 9mm motor mounts and canopy fits rx tubes, micro axii, and nano camera. Pretty sweet! Frame and canopy weigh in at 13g.

Im using 1204 motors and the JHEMCU f411 pro aio. Ngl, I really like this aio. I normally hate them but on a frame like this It looks sweet and performs well. Pretty thick though. Dry weight is 63g, so not too shabby. These motors are kinda underpowered though. 1303 would probably have been a better option but I liked their specs.

Also- just a note, CNCMadness' cf was very different this order. I had a 2ft fall and the end delaminated instantly and chipped off, it behaves like wet wood, yuck. Ill have to get another as hopefully its just the sheet of CF as all my other orders have been fantastic.

nice design... feels like a refined version of the racer x
your canopy is much prettier with the fixed camera angle

Thank you! its a little less beefy, but yeah, pretty similar. I like this canopy better than the standard aio canopies too 

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
