Wanted to build a Cinewhoop on the cheap, and found the FullSpeed 4K TurboWhoop frame for under 15$ so had to give it a whirl. ;p This is smaller than a traditional Cinewhoop, and wanted to use it with my FireFly Q6 (Mobius size HD cam). Yeah, it ain't no GoPro Hero 7 Black, but with the smaller size I should be able to get some decent footage and fly where bigger whoops cant. ;) Works on 4s and has plenty of power. Cinewhoops do not do well at all in wind (found out the hard way), so the stiller the air the better the control. Used the same stack as Whiffles, the Mamba F405 Mini MK2 stack, but used Mama 1105 5500KV motors since its a smaller rig.. Whole rig came well under 150$. All up weight is 165 grams, with the Firefly Q6. With battery 263 grams. I uploaded some HD footage of my maiden..can use some practice flying smoother and should be on full acro as well...;p

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
