OK, so just a fun quite cheap Multi project and that could be updated with lighter components and different props.
I'm using less than 2 bucks 1104 4300 kv motors from Aliexpress. Destroyed 2 in the process of making this thing (I don't recommend those motors since they use very tiny diameter for screws and special holes distance). It's obviously a LOS multi only ;)

  • Inside the canopy are crammed a CC3D and 6 x 10 A or 20 A Escs that I had from old dusty quads. Won't show the mess and hotglue, lol
  • 162 gr AUW with a 450mah
  • Frame is coming from a toy I bought second hand on Ebay like site. Arms are in aluminium. Centerpiece is plastic so won't hold a serious crash
  • Motor supports are 3d printed (my conception)
  • Flies less than 2 minutes with a 450mah battery (bad yield of those small props and I think 4 inch triblades would be far better).
  • but... It's completely silent !
  • I don't have videos of it yet but had pleasure to make it fly around. It's not a racer but it's already at least twice as performant as a the toy it was
  • Edit : I tested briefly 3040 triblades props and they seem to be better for punch

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..
