This is my 4in Atom and she is awesome! three inch props on these motors don't do them justice.The raceflight millivolt default tune was pretty much dead on.

AUW is 156g, the power to weight ratio makes for some killer hang time.

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..
