2017 Race Quad. I plan to build two of these. Initial maiden flight went very well :). Probably one of the tighest builds I've done to include everything (even LEDs and Buzzer), but I have the BF F3 to really help the size, and the FrSky XM+ receiver along with the TBS Unify Pro VTx and a stack mount for it that I've been happy with. I even have a little room to play with.

Dry weight is 335g, and with a 1.0Ah Turnigy Graphene 4S battery its only 480g.

Currently running Betaflight 3.1.6 on the FC, BLHeli_S 16.65 on the ESCs and DSHOT600 between them.

The VTx is mounted on the stack with this thing (

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..
