First attempt at a beginner freestyle drone.
360g dry +260g with my chunky-ass battery.
Bought the big battery to slow the thing down a little, plus 8:00 flight times are nice!
AUW puts thrust:weight at in the ballpark of 7.5:1 with these motors/props.

I'll get a lighter battery once I get more comfortable flying

Did you run into any issues mounting your ESC's out on the arms? I'm just starting to get parts through for a Frog build, and wasn't sure if I wanted to use a 4 in 1 ESC or seperate units?

No issues at all. Initially I considered going with a 4-in-1 ESC as well but decided against it. Tower height is limited due to the way the top of the frame angles downward toward the rear -- I would have had to go with a FC/ESC all-in-one or ditched the RunCam Split. Hope it helps and good luck with your build!

Thanks loads for the response. Once i've got the build sorted, i'll get it up here. Thanks again :D

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..
