I'm getting around 5 min of flight time. I need to set up telemetry so I'm being fairly conservative with it. Now that I have it properly tuned up, it feels great actually!

I'll post better/more pics of my build tomorrow.

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..
