MISSION:

  • Small, Whoop sized
  • Prop guard
  • Brushless
  • Sort of durable frame

Old project, not exactly satisfied with the result, but I'm proud.

Being in the Whoop scene for a while and I found standard brushed Whoop lacks power in general , especially when one attemp to perform slightly acro maneuvers, fishpepper to the rescue! Paired with 07 micro brushless motors the main components are settled.

Soft mounting was the hype and I decided to jump on it with the design, and I took it to the next level - by soft mounting half of the quad. Flight controller and camera/vtx is mounted on the prop guard, which is isolated from main frame with the propulsion system with 3D printed TPU arms, as a side effect the build is quite durable since the main mass is not rigidly connected to where it crashes most (prop guard).

FPV system is simply a VM275T AIO camera, mounted on top with 3D printed mount. Other 3D printed parts are used to mount FC/ESC and battery, sharing screws when possible to save some weight, not the lightest build and flight time is extremely short, but the most exciting 90 second flights.

Want to learn how to build an FPV rig? This guide will walk you through your first FPV freestyle build. These parts were hand-picked to balance cost and maximize performance. The TBS Source One is a popular frame for it's low cost, high quality carbon fiber. It's easy to work with and provides more than enough space for your electronics. We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
