I had a crazy idea. JUST FOR FUN
Drink bottle speed challange . Lets see how fast we can make them go.
And to be fair , because none of us has an unlimited budjet I propose a handycap points system .
Something like the cost of the build as shown below subtracted from top speed as seen in the dvr on osd just post a screen shot.
The only rule is the contence of the bottle be consumed (if safe ).
This is just a mockup .
Im looking at mounting the camera on a servo to make it adjustable in flight.
All input welcom

Never seen motors like these. What are they, and what's with the weird base/mount?

I love it! 1000.8 times better than my first use of a bottle for aero. I'm a little behind on my rotorbuilds, otherwise yoi would have gotten the "like" earlier

Cheers . Im glad ypu like it.
I neerly took it down cause i thought i might have offended you.
But the idea was to get peeps involved in an eco friendly way . No ttravell and recycling.
Ive had a few likes . Got anny ideas on how to get this rolling so people can post their results in one place.
Some video of some pretty specktacular crashes should be hillarious.
Cheers and thanks again.

I still haven't caught up - but yes, I was afraid you would have thought I was offended when I saw how long it was up! When I regularly refer to the XLR as project dildrone, it's hard (intended) to offend a person like me - now you've got a new category... I bet rcgroups would be the best place or maybe fpvlab. Fpvlab is where I came across the speed challenge that was started by roboforcerX2000.

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..
