For some additional information, MakeFlyEasy is the company that makes the Believer, so in essence, the Freeman is a Believer VTOL TiltRotor/QuadPlane. The Freeman is designed for mapping with single-camera or multi-camera aerial surveys, as well as other mission payloads. The large payload section can support DSLR cameras like Sony A5/A7. It comes pre-assembled in its own travel case. Currently, it seems to be sold only at Taobao.com. With minor modifications, it can be converted for FPV as shown on numerous Believer reviews.
Sadly my Chinese is non existent but the dollar amount under the yen one seems to range from a few hundred dollars to $2500, I’m guessing depending on the package (Kit, PNP, …)
@makeflyeasy any info on future availability in the US ? Can one purchase it on Taobao and have shipped it overseas? A quick Google search yielded several “Taobao US agents” that seems to operate as intermediary, but I’m not familiar with that.
@GregCovey Any experience with Taobao?
With the VT Bird, seems like quadplanes(-ish) are starting to appear on the market – exciting!
The KIT costs 2,399 yuan (about $348.3).If you need to purchase, you can contact our sales contact by email: email@example.com

We got three Believers.
One of them built and in use, works great!
And two not yet built Believers (the second version).
And with that I wonder if it is a complete plane-kit or just the VTOL-parts in the kit for 350USD?
We dont need one or more new planes, just the VTOL-parts.
The quad plane hardware only kit. I just ordered one & it cost $456 to get it in the US.
@mtnsurveyor Does that include all electronics (inc. Pixhawk), rx/tx, battery (ies) ?
No I wish! just the hardware only.
I need to buy moters esc FC ect…
Freeman2100 is a complete KIT version of VTOL.If you have Believer, you can also buy VTOL’s wings alone.Their fuselage and tail are universal.
Yes, the main freight and tariff are higher.
That was not a complaint on the cost. I do not have a believer but I have read only good stuff. I am happy to try this product and pay the stupid tariff.
Thank you for your recognition. If you have any questions during the subsequent installation, I can contact you directly.
Hi, I sent you an email 4 days ago and no answer. Can you check ?
I’m very sorry that my email reply to you was automatically returned, but it was not sent successfully.
Where do we buy the VTOL-wings and hardware like booms, 4x motormounts, etc, (to make the Believer a Freeman)
Can only find the complete KIT.
No answer from you on that very very weird e-mail-address.
Please get a decent email-adress at a decent supplier.
