Freybott Dinner

My first Cinewhoop build (I purchased a couple BNF before but dismantled them for parts)
I won this frame, the Freybott QAV-Cine...woohoo!

I'm really not a fan of ducts as they rob a lot of power unless the props and ducts are very specifically designed. They also make things a lot louder. What I like about this frame is that it is an open desgin so it's not fully ducted which should help with power, but it has the option of popping on foam guards for extra safety for the surroundings.

The FC and ESC are a transplant from my digital 95x, these are an odd stack and not an AIO board and the usb port is quite difficult to access.

The motors have been changed from the original 1106 4500kv of the betafpv 95x to some 1206 4500kv that should help with the heftier build than the original 95x.

I have to say the carbon cutting on the frame's baseplate is pretty retarded. There is enough place for a vista and fc + esc stack behind each other, but the cuts made in front and in the back just don't allow for any known format to mount there.

yeah, it's wierd. I mounted everything on the bottom plate except for the 4in1 ESC...the original beta95x had separate FC and ESC boards that are whoop mounted which are odd but seemed to work out here.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. 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..
