Hows it flying? Can you post PIDs/Filters? mine is nearly identical (1507 motors) and feels pretty good flying but i cant eliminate bounceback on rolls.

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..
