Just got my new 3D Printer and had some spare quad parts - time to have some fun ;). This is my first toothpick build, and was a bit challenging to get the mishmosh of parts to all fit together nicely in the stack. The 3d printed frame, canopy, and mounting plate had to be tweaked as well (glad I had a Nice to know now I can always reprint the frame if I crash. ;p It was pretty cheap to build, and it flies great. All up weight without battery is 51.3 grams..not to shabby...I'll upload some footage shortly... :D

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..
