Just in time for MultiGP Nationals in Reno, NV. This design is meant for 4in1 ESCs and micro cams only. Losing weight and decreasing drag was the goal with this frame. Thinner but taller arms should provide better airflow without sacrificing strength. In the event that an arm does get broken only one screw needs to be removed for a swap. Slim but strong, this build comes in at 299g w/o battery.

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..
