I really like the 4" format and especially the micro apex frame. Thus, this is my second (backup) drone. Well, technically it is a clone (BG steele) since I could not get hold of the genuine one. Only the CF parts have been re-used.

Here are a few specs:

  • Insulated Caddx Vista
  • Nebula Pro Nano
  • Iflight SucceX-D Mini F7 TwinG Stack
  • T-motor 1507 kv2700
  • Props 4032-3
  • 4s 650-850 mAh, Tattu R-line
  • HM Expresslrs 2.4 GHz
  • GPS GM8 Mini

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..
