Bannilight build for Sebring 2018. Fairly light weight build and I'm hoping that it will be a good racer.

What size capacitor are you using? (dimmensions and voltage,uf values) That is a perfect place to put it, very nice.

It's a 1000uf 25v. Not sure on the actual dimensions.

The arm extends out in front of the motors to protect from frontal impacts. So if you are using it for racing you are covered from the majority of impacts. The 5mm arms also help in that regard.

Generally hitting anything at the angle where you would hit the side of a motor is rare, i think for a lightweight frame it is more than adequate.

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..
