It was love at first sight when I saw this frame for the first time. Altough I prefer 3" inch micros for the flying I do I went ahead with this frame that is 2.5" max. Halfway throught the build I test fitted a 3" prop for sh1ts ng giggles, turns out the 3" fits the back arms. I then decided to do something a little different which I always wanted to do, Invert the front motors. This was really a gem to fly!! 6+min easy with alot of flippy floppies on 3S 450mah.

Since it was so convenient to fly in my street from the driveway at night times, I swapped the nebula pro out with a Polar. Day and night difference when flying in the dark!
Running bf4.2.11 with Bi-Di and BlueJay on the esc's it's a reall point and shooter with power on tap. I ended up converting it to normal 2.5" with motors on top. Still flies lovely but not on the same level as 3". Thats why I had to go the TP3 route (see my other builds).

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..
