This is the same build as the v1 atom, but with upgraded hardware. This build eventually was upgraded to a 4" frame (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/9655).

I got tired of all the weight and figured I could shed a few grams switching over to the BFF3, Spedix20a lite, vtx03 and a runcam micro. I used the rx1306's for a little bit, but eventually switched to the BH1407's and began using 4s.

at some point, you should upgrade the camera to the Atom HD camera, which has got 1080p 60fps (don't quote me on the fps). It is made to go with the atom and it is supposed to be really awesome

This build was upgraded to a 4” atom (my other post), and I use the RXHDcam on that one. The cam is fantastic dude

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..
