as you can see by the pictures, this is not a build but a rebuild. this is been my daily driver for several months and I absolutely love the way it flies but it was time to update to HDZERO Freestyle. I'm trying to decide whether to put the VTX on the center stack or in the rear. if it goes in the stack, I'll put the flight controller in the rear.

filtration has been the name of the game on this quad from day one. individual ESC each have a capacitor and I have a 50 volt 1 farad capacitor on the battery lead. I've also added a fettec spike absorber.

individual ESCs our old school but they worked really well so far and I don't intend to change.

I couldn't get another AIO so I had to go with a traditional 4 in 1 ESC and FC and the only rx I had is a Betaflight one with external antenna. shoving all that inside got really tight and I found myself wishing for taller standoffs. it's together but it is tight.

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..
