The nicest frame I've ever come accross. I chose this frame in particular to be my first 5" build. I love the low profile look combined with the high gloss premium carbon and the heated titanium screws.

FC & ESC
I went with the Hobbywing 45a, 6s capable stack. I've read nothing but amazing reviews. Very easy to install, just plugging in the ESC to the FC. This stack uses a plug for the vtx, so I had to splice with the connector Hobbywing provides.

Motors
I decided to go with the LS2207 2550kv by Emax. I was trying to find a balance between efficiency and power. Hopefully these motors will provide just that. Plus they look badass.

FPV
I went with the very reliable TBS Unify Pro for the vtx. For the camera I decided to use the Foxeer Predator Mini. I stumbled upon it and really liked how it looked.

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..
