I originally built this frame 2 years ago but ended up crashing it in the ocean. All the electronics were shot but the motors were ok so I cleaned lubed and put them away. I got tired of looking at it and had some spare parts lying around from old builds. The esc's are actually the older style non blheli s RG20 but i couldn't find a listing. I will be putting the fpv gear on in the next few days. It has lots of punch with the 9" props on 4s, im probably going to drop down to an 8" to be save. If I run 3S it will be safe on 10".

The pic with the red props was before I crashed it in the ocean 2 years ago

Total Price-------$0 everything is recycled, even the props are used

Should have some 450 fpv acro videos coming soon. It flips well LOS and has plenty of thrust to catch itself. Hoping for some glide time when its upside down

I haven't weighed it but its not too bad. it is very stripped down. Im sure the Martian top plate also saved me a few grams.

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..
