Another Amazon frame or from USmile. Did some spring cleaning and saw some parts I had forgotten about. Decided to put this together as I am missing a 2 inch yard banger that has some power. It started with the ESC.... in 2021 I bought a Tiny Talon flight stack 16mm with F722. The FC is dead however I forgot that this esc is 32 bit. Not much out there right now for 16mm flight controllers.... Went with a flywoo FC as it has the right uarts and it was an F405. Slightly disapoinnted to see 3.2 as the max pid loop frequency but oh well. The soldering was tight but not bad. Front of the FC is busy with ELRS, cam, antenna and ESC all on front edge and first row of pads. Had to use a rear plug on the ESC and stretch the wires to the front of the flywoo FC.

The frame gets narow near the rear and althought it fits a 19mm camera up front I went with baby ratel nano and put an elrs RX from jhemcu in front of the stack stuck to bottom deck with 3M VHB. Want to keep somewhat of a center weighting. Ordered a 16mm mamba mounting board for the unify nano from TBS to keep it tidy. Had the motors from a couple of years ago and a build that never finished. Its slightly heavy but will be devoid of plastic whoop problems. This frame came with cheap ducts so I used geprc rocket ducts for their non vibrational nature. Will run as 3s. Some of these parts are not sold any longer.

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..
