Canti - Zuul Superbeast

My Zuul Superbeast has been running for quite a long time, I have replaced several parts and now I decided to get more into acro flying. I really like the GoPro cage as this keeps my GoPro safe from sure destruction. I prefer my GoPro is protected over my flight camera as the swift is much cheaper to replace. This is also why I refer to this quadcopter as Canti which is the tv head robot from FLCL.
The four in one ESC is also the power distribution board and is capable of running Dshot600. I decided to add bullet connectors because the Kiss FC is so sensitive to vibration that everytime I crash and a motor gets bent it causes it to have a twitch in flight. The bullet connectors save me time when swapping motors in the field since I am still practicing to fly acro, once I feel more confident as I am crashing less and less I will probably upgrade motors and direct solder them on.

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..
