As Captain Jack Sparrowe said: "Wherever we want to go, we go. That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails. That's what a ship needs. But what a ship is...what the Black Pearl really is...is freedom"

My second Toothpick Build called "Black Pearl".
As I'am part of the Facebook Group "TWIG Builders" I became quick a big fan of the TWIG Frame.
Building this beauty made fun and was easy (not as hard, as the Sanchez 3" with 1404 Motors)
Flys pretty nice and I love the 5000KV with the AVAN Rush 2.5", in my opinion a perfect match!
Weight is 55g without Battery.

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..
