Longrange Cinematic Shredder

My first attempt at building a longrange FPV quad, flew the maiden today was pretty chuffed with it, very stable. The frame is accutally a placeholder, while I'm waiting for the Project399 Super G Plus 7” to arrive (https://www.defiancerc.com/collections/frames/products/project399-super-g-7-frame). I'm hoping this will solve any props in shot issues, currenty only shooting with a Go-Pro session, but would like to upgrade to a Hero 7 Shortly. Most impressed with how quiet the 1600kv motors and Azure props are.

My only concern at the moment is my range using my old Aomway Commanders, it seems alright, has anyone flown any long-ish range with the Aomways?
Also the frames very light, but seems strong and very little arm flex, only nagative is the cab is very tight, not much room to play with.

Any advise on the build very much apprecated!

Cheers

Would you say these props would still fly nice on 1200kv? I am thinking of building a 7 inch with 2508 1200kv

I would have thought so yes, but I beleve 1200kv would be better suited to 7" twin props, (I maybe wrong!). The reason I chose these 6" tri-blades is they're generally easier to tune, and less susceptible to propwash, etc. Due to these Azures being tri you get a 'simular' thrust output to twin 7" props, (with the same pitch obviously). That's my understsnding anyway, hope that helps!

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..
