My second custom built quads which I initially used the Jhemcu GHF420AIO but the board burned which flashing the BLHELI firmware - still couldn't figure out why. As a result I repurposed the iFlight F7 board that I'd originally planned for another frame.

Following my preference for spray painting the frame, this Apex looks sharp with the neon orange paint and it fly great with Brotherhobby 2004 motors - managed to get 5min with moderate freestyle on 1300 4s.

I love the fire red. Did you sand or otherwise prepare the carbon and standoffs for the paint job? Was it just regular car spray paint or something else?

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..
