Lang range 4S cruiser. Set up with betaflight GPS rescue using M8N glonass gps. This rendition is a full rebuild from my previos 5.7 Alien that took a dunk in a river. Plenty of power and decent flight times as long as you're concious of your throttle position. The alien frame is a pain to secure batteries via bottom mount but can be done with the correct size standoffs uner the FC.

Nice 7" build. Interested to know your AUW too.
What size batteries are your running?

thanks! never weighed it but its not that heavy. on a 4s 1550mah battery it'll do 8 min flights if im throttle conscious. will be adding a new hero5 mount and go back to top mounting the batteries. feels more stable as a top mount.

Looks great. Whats the range? speed? Got video?

range is good. only been out 2km with it so far just testing the gps rescue mode. custom made rx antenne puts it way up and asay from the carbon ao LQ was 99% the whole way out and back. speed is good. fast enough to cover some decent ground pretty quick but still somewhat efficient. and just waiting on new gopro mount for video.

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..
