This build just about emptied my wallet - I even had to sell my transmitter to fund it! (currently looking for a cheaper replacement to get back in the air) But I love to build, probably more than flying and I'm more than happy with how this one turned out.

The biggest challenge was mounting the Tarsier which uses M2 mounting. I used long M2 bolts with some M2 brass grommets to make them sit nicely in the M3 holes.

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..
