Tricopters are Boss. And even better are foldabe Tricopters you can take everywhere.

I only have pictures without the motors, dont exactly know why.
But i can say this Frame is great. even with the extension due to the FPV camera mount
(which i got from here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:852768)
the whole craft can fold down to the size of a small bottle of water, allowing you to just put it in the sidepocket of your packpack.
Another great feature is that you can run a lot of wires on the inside of the craft, aswell that the FC can be mounted in a safe bay at the bottom, which i used for my PDB.

Thanks for the build.

I wouldnt recommend it for racing or acro flying. More of an transportable AP solution when combined with 7“ props

yeah aerial videography is near imposible without a gimbal, but you can still record using a gopro 3/4 and extract single 4k images

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..
