I just wanted to create a very tiny X8.
I think I somewhat achieved that.

still planning and designing a cam holder canopy? thing to fly that thing in FPV.

I had some hurdles to cross with this project.
waiting time bcs Flywoo accidentally sent me only 2 motors instead of the 2x 5 pack I ordered.
weird incompability between their own FC and ESC.
the tiny plug is mechanically compatible, but not electronically, so I had to handsolder both tiny 16x16mm ESC to the FC.
soldering to 16mm hardware is something else.
it needs calm nerves, a steady hand and a magnifying glass.

another currently ongoing problem is the VTX does not want to work.
it's sending "something" but not what it should.

here my first test flight:

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..
