This is my 2019 spare Freestyle rig.
2700KV motors
Lots of power on punch outs and drop catches.
This is a really nice, clean build. The ribbon cable connecting the FC and the PDB/VTX makes everything easy to keep wiring to a minimum.
The caps are installed in case I ever wanted to go 5S, but they ensure that the video is crystal clear. VTX is setup with smart audio for remote control via FC.
There is a custom heatsync on the video transmistter, and re-purposed props for ESC guards.
Dronekeeper mini for independent alarm in case of battery ejection.
Built clean, strong and all parts are secured. All wire connections are soldered and painted with liquid e-tape.

AUW without battery and HD cam (as pictured) is 456 grams.

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..
