This is finally my stretched AstroX TrueXS Switch build

UPDATE 2017/11
Changed FC to raceflight revolt
Changed vtx to AXII ufl
Changed cam to foxeer arrow micro v2

324g AUW (straps/battery plate/props included)

Power system
-Airbot Typhoon BLHELI32 32 bits 4 in 1 ESC
I didn't solder and used the telemetry port yet as the FC doesn't provides specifc pads for it, but will do in the future
-Brother Hobby R3 2207 2550kv
-Tattu R LIne 1300mah (and others)

-Matek FC F4 F405-OSD
As the ESC doesn't include BEC, the 5V ouput of the VTX power the FC
-Matek VTX
Telemetry port connected to FC's UART to use tramp telemtry protocol
-FrSky XSR
Smartport (inversion hack needed) to manage PIDS et VTX power/freq from Taranis

-Runcam Micro Sparrow : direct lipo voltage
16:9 very nice for my Aomway Commander goggles
-Lumenier AXII SMA (then ufl version)
There is no optimal or very rigid antenna holder planned in this frame, some 3D print or small u.fl antenna would be better to fit

HQ 5x4.3x3 v1s to begin with

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..
