I must confess this is a spur of the moment build. I bought a few FPVCycle AIO boards when it became available and built this quad based on what I already had with me.

This build is a little on the heavier side. I had bought the Caddx Baby Ratel 2 for GnarlyFPV Sub Atomic, but found out that it is too deep to use. A lighter camera might be better, but it is what I had.

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..
