The Original

This is effectively the first quad I ever built. Sort of.... I have put more flight controllers through this frame than I can count. It's had 2 arms replaced, but whilst some parts remain the same I still consider it my original and most loved machine :)

In this iteration of this Rooster based build, Scrappy has the Brain FPV freestyle combo (Radix flight controller and pb), and on his arms he's sporting Airbot Furling32 ESC's and the Limited edition Rebel 2550kv Matte Red motors. (Love these things)

The Rooster is quite a challenging frame to build in, as the slammed deck leaves room for only 2 boards on the stack, and the removable arms take up most of the other space. I usually use AIO boards so I can get the vtx on the stack as well but in this case I decided to design a custom 3d printed mount for the vtx that mounts to the rear stand offs. It's designed to perfectly fit a Unify Pro HV and specifically be paired with the antenna mount 3d print, which is another custom design for the Lumenier Axii and an immortal T style antenna. There's a final custom 3d printed piece underneath the vtx which the r9mm slots into making all the tx/rx goodness in the rear of the frame and is well protected.

One bonus of the Furlings and the Brain FPV power board is the built in LED's, so you get 8 LED's for free! I also have 8 additional LED's under the arm's just for the hell of it so this lil guy is as LIT as a Christmas tree :D

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..
