v1 had vibration issues which turned out to be a stripped motor bolt. 2s is just a tiny bit of jello, but 3s is very noticable. I was hitting definitly overworking the FC on 3s with these motors. Motors were not hot buy i was pushing well beyond the recommended max A.
I'll try some tuning and see if i can eliminate the vibrations.

The beeper was the only thing prevented me from running larger props so i moved it :)

I had some personal aggression issues with having to unscrew the spacer everytime i needed to usb, so i rotated the new camera mount 90 degrees. I then had to rotate the fc in betaflight. That worked, but when i went to remap my motors everything i did made all motors stop working. I reflashed the FC and all was good to remap the motors.. Then a motor screw stripped.
I resolded a new motor (i took the great advice of buying 5 at once instead of 4 :) ) in place with some tweezers. I just had to remove the spacer :(
LEDS on back for visibility this time. A different canopy and secured the antenna this time.

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..
