Looks pretty solid. AUW?

It’s a tank compared to my last quad. This puppy is sitting at 674g AUW with 6” props and a 1300mAh Adrenaline pack.

And that low profile session mounting is genius.

660g here, seems like above 650g is what we usually get when building tanky 6inch without saving weight.
Which is totally fine, more floaty than most of light 5inch quads :)

I see all of your last quads retired... bad crash?

Yeah I didn't really care about the end weight on this quad. The "floaty" thing is BS to me though haha. What I do know is this quad flies just like I want, I just have to tune out the oscillations it has.

First quad was outdated, parted out. Second quad had too many video problems. Third took a arm-breaking crash at a race and instead of cutting a new unibody baseplate i just moved all the parts to this 6" frame.

I always wanted to try 6" too. I will probably run this quad on 5" props for the most part though.

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..
