This build took me a while to finish because I only had time on weekends...

(only hovered it so far)

Some info:
AUW 638g
Running 4S 1300
I'm a Pyrodrone fanboy

I chose the glide floss over some other frames because of how cheap and well constructed the frame was. And its very stiff as well, unbelievably good. Props to ma dude Bob Roogi out there.

For the FC I obviously chose the PyroF4, because its so cheap yet it had so many features I didn't need. Had a little hassle with some recalls with it as well. At the time I was ordering the FC I noticed on the Facebook group that they just released the v2.2, so immediately bought it. A few days later, there was a recall. So I sent it back and waited for it to be restocked. Eventually v2.2 got fixed and I got the good version. Some problems I had with this is it gets hot while being plugged in for a while, which I would expect from other FCs as well.

And to go with the F4, I picked the Pyro32. A plug and play, simple as that. (And it's cheap).

And somehow, I bought the F60s when they were cheap and and discounted. I actually regret doing that, I should have bought the Hyperlite 2207.5s.

Bought like 6 packs of HQ 5.1x4.1x3. Maybe I'll regret that later because Gemfan released a 5146.6, which I am dying to try.

For both the Predator v3 and the Lollipop. I WISHED I COULD HAVE WAITED LONGER. There's now a Lollipop v3 and a Predator v4. Hate myself for being that type of person.

And Unifys are so expensive, I choose the race hv, and had lots of stupid problems trying to power it up.

And also took the jump at Crossfire, cuz that's what everyone is running nowdays.

And for being the most sacrilegious person ever, I bought the RDQ 4S 1300. I don't like RDQ but I bought it considering how much JB liked it and how cheap it was as well.

Thanks to Brain3D for the high quality prints and extra goodies as well.

This build will sit on my shelf until I have time...

I love the Hyperlite 2207.5s and the 5146.6s. You need to try the props especially. They are fire af.

I actually have switched from the HQ 5.1x4.1x3 to the Gemfans 5146666666666 a month ago. Would swap my T-Motors for the Hyperlites 10/10

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..
