I have two Apex 5 inch frames and love how they fly and the quality.... i had some bits from quads i took apart for some reasons so i used some bits i already had, like the Caddx vista units and the Caddx nebula (will upgrade this when they become available again) i also had the Diatone Mamba stack so i used this too.... can’t see any reason at the moment to upgrade this. i also had a load of 4s 850mah battery’s so i wanted to utilise these too.

after taking it for its first fly, I’m impressed at how it flies on stock setting.... its nimble and smooth, i wasn’t expecting it to fly this smooth as my last 3 inch (iflight H3) was not smooth and suffered badly with prop wash...

I’ve tried a few different pitch props and find the Gemfan 3x2.8x3 smoothest for now. i also run a naked gopro on it too.

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..
