Just finished this guy up tonight. I started one way, ended up going another, and gonna throw a foxeer box up top and start recording some of my stuff just to keep track of (hopefully) improvements.

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..
