I built my first Shrieker with 1306 3100kv motors, and I wanted to see if upgrading to 1407 would make a difference. It definitely does, it feels significantly more powerful and stable. I'm flying this at an AUW of ~235g with 480 mAh 4S batteries. I need to make it lighter, and there's a lot of low-hanging fruit as you can see. By the way, I put the VTX on the outside just to make it easier to change channels during an event, but there's plenty of room for it inside (I could probably have 3 or 4 VTXs there).

how long are your flight times with the 480mah? any reason you didn't use the 3800kv motors?

About 3 minutes of moderate flying, close to 4 if I take it easy. The 3800kv motors are for 3S, I have 6 of these 480 mAh 4S batteries that work great with the 3200kv version.

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..
