Not all parts are brand new... the FC and canopy are the only real “new” parts on this quad. However, I do find it aesthetically pleasing!

Did you power the vtx from batt directly or from fc pads?

Is the tpu canopy lighter than the carbon fiber, 2 standoffs, and camera mount hardware? Build is very sharp btw

Thanks! You know I'll have to check up on that... I still haven't had the opportunity to put this thing to the test so I'm scared to take everything out just yet! But from what I know, I have friends with Norris Edition frames, and one has 215g with the canopy, and the other is hitting 210g with the top plate and standoffs. The one with the 215g norris and canopy said he could obtain 210g if he use the plate instead so maybe this is enough of a way to gauge until a real weigh-in...

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..
