This is a rebuild of a micro quad I used last winter that I wasn't really happy with. I upgraded a few parts, swapped to lighter batteries, and ditched the 3d printed prop protector on the PikoOwl and it is a good deal lighter and more agile now, and it flies pretty great! It still struggles with prop-wash a bit, as the motors are a bit low torque for the prop size I'm using, but it's totally serviceable, especially for indoor flying. Currently it's right at 70g with 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..
