6/26/2019: at.www.myrcmart.com they just offer 1103 7800kv with 1mm shaft.

it's fast. it's cruising at about 20%
it might make many 5" freestyle quads flying like a toy :) kidding.
the build is simple.
just make it 50g or lighter. don't add 10g to it because i don't know how it would fly :)

the build:
-- look at the video and where i'm flying. that place if it was you, you want to fly a normal 3" or 5" quad right ?
-- but i don't want a normal 3" or 5" quad. i want some thing small, light and fast enough.

i'm happy to find this. it's small enough so i don't have to worry about killing anyone :)
it has enough power to climb over any tree quickly.
i'm content for now :)
one thing i don't like about the build. those tiny stupid props are so freaking loud :)
and it needs better vtx.

sometimes you'll see weird jerking movements, those are from the battery moving underneath the quad.

pid is ok, it's flyable. still need some tuning.
i suggest buying kingkong 1103 with 1mm shaft. drilling out the mounting holes is very hard :)

betaflight 4.0.3
frame is about 7g.
i used betaflight presets and change things a little. so credits to them.

can you use 100% throttle ? i don't know.
you can use less filters to help with propwash, but do it carefully. check motors temperature.

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..
