This is an upgrade to my orginal build called "Guano" - . The orginal build was a bit heavy for 1S although it flew, and the JMT Play F4 Whoop Flight Controller had really low rated ESC for 2S (only 5 amps max) and I blew the ESC when I tried 2S with the 10000KV motors. Gave up on 1S for this little beast, and made it 2S and up using the16x16mm JHEMCU GHF13 AIO F4 with 13 amp ESC. Now it can take 2S and RotorX quad blade props. Flys much faster now and more stable, but be warned with 3D PLA Printed frames - full throttle will give ya some vibrations and jello. And...dont crash..... Added Lemon RX DSM Receiver with divserity which has way better range - need to go pretty far before a dropout happens now.

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..
