I was having issues with my last 3" build so I decided to build another. I also wanted to mimick the top mounted batteries of all the mini quads out there and the iX3 was the perfect choice.

Does she fly well? Which other 3" didn't, is it one on your profile?
I'm thinking about making a 3" and i'm not sure if I should care about top mount/bottom mount.

This build flew VERY well... I sadly broke the frame doing something silly and it landed on an arm... I feel like it was my best flying 3" I've ever built.

The Minima Tertius XS had a lot of problems and I couldn't tune it out... I think the frame was vibrating against the FC and creating some shakey issues...

Maybe one day...

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..
