4''Atom (Cherry Bomb reborn)

After a very hard inverted crash on the pavement and damaging the FC and receiver it was time to rebuild. I decided to make a few changes and try and loose a few G's along the way. It's not the lightest 4'' out there, but at 260 AUW with a 850 4s battery I can most definitely live with it.

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.
