This is my first true micro build using the X2 Elf 88 frame. I had it built with an Eachine MinuCube but it limited the angle of the flight camera because of the stack height so I ended up using a Piko BLX, Cicada 10a 4in1 ESC and LemonRx DSMX satellite. I made the VTx antenna hole slightly larger so that I could get the camera tipped back a little farther and removed the side nubs on the bottom plate to use a small battery strap instead of rubber bands. I printed some small red TPU spacers to use between the ESC and flight controller. The props are cut to 49mm and there's a miniature 9mmx5.5mm buzzer hot glued to the rear standoff. I've been flying it with some RMRC 450mAh 3S 60c and Glacier Ice 850mAh 3S 75c batteries and it's very fast. It weighs 54.55 grams without a battery.

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..
