If you want to save a little money you might want to buy the Pixhawk lite from Goodluckbuy.

I have a couple on the way, one from this seller. I´ll test and post feedback soon as I can.

apm is a great FC at a great price. I am looking to take a step up with the FC in this build. very true about the encoder. the chinese super happy fun time combo deal I posted has one. I am curious to see how that $26 apm works out. that is a great price. I am not familiar with that seller on aliexpress so I hope the quality is good. at that price I am really thinking about making a fun knock around flier out of spare parts.

I just changed it to US warehouse. I'll trade $2 for 2 weeks any day.

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..
