Nice build! How is your nylon standoffs holding in crashess? I have the same frame, and mine broke at he very first crash ;] had to replace them with longer screws and aluminium standoffs.

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..
