My first build, wanted something cheap and durable to learn on, order all the parts 2 days before the uavfutures $99 build...

Pretty simple to wire and setup. Fun quad once its put on betaflight 3.1.7 instead of 3.1.1 lol


-ESCs are stacked 2 on the arm between the 2 motors.
-Rx is ziptied down near back.
-FC is on 3m foam tape and ziptied down.
-PDB is taped over FC.
-FC, PDB, and wires are taped and ziptied to the center of the quad so the
props don't destroy them.


-Fpv gear, probably an aio or the kingkong Q25 cam and vtx
-bigger battery 650-850mah
-new ESC and 14xx or 1306 redbottoms (for 4s capability)
-better props, 3 or 4 blade...more pitch
-knurled standoffs
-blue loctite for motor screws (they seem to be fine rn tho)

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..
