Ronin II

This is a rebuild of a decimated fore barer. With Ronin II, I try to handle fail points. Switched in a RR swift, I used a "Capacitor Koozie" TM to protect the fat cap I use from getting dented in hard crashes. This was made by cutting up some emax motor box foam wrapping it around the cap, and heat shrinking. I used foam support and strain relief on the sma connection to prevent breakage. I also mounted the antenna on the arms.

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..
