This is the exact set up I had planned.. lol
How does it fly? Do you have any flight videos?

I've got a couple on my channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjD4JnzDq29P9YRMHvfBR1A

It took a little tuning to get it right for what I wanted it for; mainly acro and hd footage. Stock kiss PIDs are ok but I needed to lock in the pitch, particularly on the punchouts.

Therefore, I have switched to hq5x4x3 v1s props for a smoother ride, and switched the motors up for F40 pros (2600kv) for that extra little bit of punch.

All in all, best setup I've ever had, and I don't see myself changing it up any time soon!

Looks great! Don't let that total price fool you though, you only entered a single motor and ESC quantity ;)

It does make me feel better looking at a smaller number, but my wallet knows the full extent!

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..
