Hi wklee.fpv, very nice built. I finished the Gecko 3 inch too, but I got a very bad resonance on this frame running motor 1506 4300Kv. It's cause heavy jello whenever throttle go above 70%. Have you facing that issue ?

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..
