If your looking to build a Sub 250g Analogue or Digital HD LR / FreeStyle Quad then this 4" should be your next build.

I've used a Caddx Vista Nebula V2 but I've removed the plates to save weight (Naked)

This 4" Quad can Cruise around for 41 Minutes with a Sony VTC6 3s 3000mAh Battery with an AUW of Sub 250g !!!! or use a Tattu 4s 450mAh Battery with an AUW of 152g and it becomes a Super Efficient FreeStyle Rocket giving me 6 Mins of FreeStyle Ripping.


The Only Downside to this Build is Props in Shot but when a Quad Fly's this good its a small price to pay.

Any Questions Just Ask ?

i have a 3" 1s, andi love how it flies and how quiet it is. i upgraded to walksnail and its just slightly too heavy, so im looking at a 4" with similar specs to yours. do you ever run it with 3s lipo? wondering how quiet it is.

There is a deadcat vandal 4'' frame no?
I also love this frame. When my mutant dies, I'll switch to that one!

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..
