This is my Nostal v3.2 frame - short for nostalgia. This is currently a 1s 3in quad similar to the THFS and Betafpv HX115 LR. I made this as a proof of concept and to prove that my designs 6 years ago were fairly well thought out and could be used in the real world.

6 years ago, I was a kid in elementary school wishing I could fly airplanes and drones. I set out to save any and all cash I could earn. 6 years ago I didn't have parts to use, didn't have any experience in piloting, didn't have software or the knowhow to design and had to draw on a notebook, but I constantly did research that year I was saving up for drones. I am glad I did because I now have the capabilities to manufacture my own frames and I'm lucky to experience more innovation in micro drones the past 4 years.

This frame is currently only for me but V3.3 and V4 are on its way to be published in thingiverse. If you have the time, I've linked here my video on it, its specs, and future changes I'd like to make.

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..
