From old parts...
Hopefully I might get some of those cheap racerstar motors, new 6s (8s maybe??) esc's and potentially a new frame and make this a nice 10" fpv quad. I had 2212 920kv motors but swapped them out for some old samguks for a quick test.

test flight - this had 5" props

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..
