i'm excited to share this 2s 5in build with you.
it's analog. it's cheap, light and quiet. it's fun. and it flies great.
it sounds like a small X-class quad.

DJI digitals are expensive and analogs are much cheaper.
Caddx Vista/camera cost $160, i can build this quad from $170 to $190

130g dry + 2s 1100mah = 204g all-up-weight
$30 -- JHEMCU Updated GHF411AIO Pro 25A
$18 -- caddx ant
$18 -- PandaRC VTX
$12 -- ExpressLRS receiver
any light toothpick style frame ( but i'm using the old Hyperlite UL5 from Pyrodrone and the new one looks about the same )
Xnova 1804 3500kv
gf5126 props
i separated 4s, 6s 1100mah to get 2s 1100mah.

i'll put its tune here later.

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..
