Got rid of my Acrobrat and jumped on the Toothpick bandwagon. The Primo from GnarlyFPV is, imho, by far the best toothpick frame (if you don't wat to run 3 inch props). NamelessRC FC/ESC and the Amax motors (4-hole version) were locally available, so i went for them. At first i mounted the Unify Pro32 on the back of the Runcam Nano2, which appeared to be to close to the Crossfire RX. I was having multiple horizontal static bands in the fpv feed. After mounting both the VTX and the RX to the FC as far away from each other as possible those video issues went away.
After a few succesfull flights on Betaflight 4.0, i decided to go 4.1 RC1 and purchase joelucid's JESC (https://jflight.net) to enable RPM filtering on these BLHELI_S ESCs. So far the results are excellent. I am running 3 brand new perfect super smooth motors and one that has a severly damaged bell and makes weird noises, but there is no influence to the flight performance/smoothness visible.

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..
