For a while I've been looking to build a quad just to get those smooth, slow cinematic shots. Something safe to use around people and to fly inside with.
The Squirt was the answer to those needs. Build was quite easy, plenty of space for all components, tunning was a bit harder. Nurk's blog about it helped alot.
Not the best flying quad out there but gets the job done. It's quite a temperamental machine - hates wind and ground effect prop wash.
Getting used to fly such a low camera tilt took a while but was a fun process.
UPDATE: After months of tunning and trying other stuff I found this tune from Robert Moss by suggestion of Benoit Fink AKA Fincky. It's amazing!

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
