Without Gimbal and camera whole setup weight is about 1390 grams and I get about 15 minutes flight time.

I bought futaba which is a very good RC tx/rx but dont go with it as it is very costly, and you can see at my setup price u can go with a DJI phantom 3 which is very stable

currently iam upgrading my setup to a simple aerial platform soon ill post pics

680 sunnysky,1047 or (1365 if you can fit) on 4S.Prepare for takeoff.

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..
