I produce monthly videos for a department at my school, so I built a cinewhoop for the sake of getting more dynamic shots. A few brief notes:

  • Motors are relatively cool, I'm pushing about 40% throttle to get off the ground
  • I was able to get f.port running on the FC without changing any settings to the Sbus pad
  • I'm considering setting a throttle curve so I can hover at a lower throttle
  • Although the r9mm antenna is poorly placed, for the purposes of filming - the range is perfect

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
