My buddy sent me a piece of FPV history all built out with cc3d, flysky rx, deans connector, and 1806. I told myself I needed to fly it like that but chickened out.
I took the guts from the firebirb and some stuff that was laying around and slapped this thing together. Flies great!

Amazingly versatile frame!

Yeah I might rebuild it nicely. Just slapping it together from junk laying around and it's a nice flier. I'll put some thought into it and probably print some parts and have a nice little beater for sure! Thanks man :)

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..
