I did some, lets say, "experimenting" with the original 5" arms, then got some 6"ers done for it (thanks lazd). The 5" arms are a few mm short of being able to hold 6" praps. I had originally drilled another motor mount hole in the arm tip to move the motors out more, but this would have been disasterous in a crash. (also thanks lazd) Sometimes I only think of what I can do, not what I should do. ;)

I was planning on using this as the base for my Firebirb, but ended up using a Kingcrab (a 5" version of the Garagecrab) I've wanted to do something special with. This build was finished in standard style just because it was such a good looking set of carbon. I printed a 30 to 20 stack adapter to use my favorite combo, Ori32 and Omnibus Nano. I'm not sure what it will end up being, but the new BanniHeavy Thiccboi edition is a damn nice frame! The Session mount from Raggio fits perfectly on this one by sheer chance. Pretty neat. :)

It's already back in pieces waiting for the right special project, but I wanted to post this build because I think it was really sharp looking.

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..
