My Shrike build, may it rest in pieces. After I broke my 4th top plate, 2nd motor, 3rd VTX, and an arm, I had to retire the skinny thing. It was tons of fun to fly and inspired me to design the Falcon 185 that solves its flaws, so I'm glad I built it!

Building another 250?

Cool, all is well now! And yes, I'm a developer at Adobe, hence all the poking with script tags and the like :) A suggestion: You should throw a max-width on images, I added an image tag in my comment that pointed to a huge image and it appeared full size.

And yeah, the final version has the VTX on the right side, so you can mount a Mobius or Foxeer on the top. I'll be trying to throw a GoPro Session or Polaroid Cube on the top, both of which should fit perfectly.

Ah yes, good catch on the image as well. I set the width to 100% to keep things responsive. Thread posts allow for image attachments for build logs, so there isn't a need to reference an external image per se. Responses to threads do not support image uploads, but markdown is still supported to reference external images. This is similar to the way Facebook handles threads.

I hadn't seen the Polaroid cube before. It definitely looks like a better buy than the GoPro Session, but I haven't compared the quality. I do know the Session isn't a very good value at its price.

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..
