This is my first racing build after 3 months of racing with my freestyle build. I have only done the maiden flights and I can already tell how much more powerful it is while still being very controllable and smooth.
I needed it to be light and at 216g dry and 381g AUW I achieved what I was hoping for. It's also my first 6s-intended build and it's great. Somehow it only pulls around 64 amps at full throttle so I feel like there is a low risk of burning the mamba 5 Reactor 44A ESC.
The VTX and ESC have m2 mounting holes while the frame has m3. I though this was unfortunate at first but it allowed me to put the BetaFPV X-Night pressnuts in the m3 holes, making them m2 and achieving the benefits of having a pressnut at the bottom of your stack.
The only odd thing about this build is that on each motor there is a screw that digs into the winding possibly and makes the motor hot, but if you just run 3 screws per motor then there is no issue.

Here's some recent racing from it:

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..
