I had the Asgard32 going spare after giving up on it in a Flowride on account of it being just too big to fit properly & my previous F1 build was feeling a bit outdated with a F3 flight controller & no OSD... so it seemed like a logical upgrade/rebuild path! With the single board stack I dropped it onto 20mm standoffs (it might even have been possible to use 15mm, the FPV camera is actually the bottleneck). One side effect of the shorter standoffs was the requirement to boost the HD cam mount to clear the props, so I printed a riser in the super soft FlexiSMART to sit beneath the rigid.ink flexible PLA seat.

On 6" 4S my favourite is the Gemfan 6042-2, on 7" 4S I use the HQ 7x3.5x3 V1S. I've tried all sorts of 6" & 7" props & never had issue with overheating etc. even with heavier/more aggressive props like the 7" triblade Cyclone.

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..
