Got my Rooster in, just starting on the build! Had to get a bit creative to mount the smaller camera, but it seems to work pretty well! Got the motors in, as well as a prototype flight controller. It's all built and should be maidening soon!.

Hi, i'm planning to build a rooster like yours but i have some doubts on the motors. How do the f60 2500kv perform in your build? Do you think lumenier 2407 2550kv can perform better? Thanks.

2407 2550kv are going to be monster motors. Thats a lot of weight and a lot of current draw. Personally I prefer a bit lighter motor. he F60 are already pretty dang powerful on this setup. No complaints at all, and super smooth. This was on that setup lat year:

Great looking build, got a quick question if you don't mind. How did you wire the Aikon 4-in-1 ESC to Matek FC? I'm doing a similar build. Thanks!

Hey man, I actually ended up using an Aikon prototype FC on this one and it just has the wiring harness to go between the two. There should be a harness for the Matek as well though, depending on which one you use.

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..
