Whoop CineWhoop (AKA CineBumperWhoop)

Wanted a real small cinewhoop just like Robert Mcintosh uses. But I want SOME protection for the naked hero 6 at the expense of weight. So I took an armattan bumper frame I had for like 2 years but never built and transplanted my doinker motors into it. Got a Beta 12a AIO FC, an oscar backpack vtx and made this. It does use some custom 3d printed parts which will eventually be on thingiverse.

Here's the 1st test. Note I could only get flights of about 1-1.5 minutes because my batteries were 3 years old. SO a couple clips put together. Still needs a tune but not bad for 1st time out with this build.

thank you!
last question please !
during the process of the striping, what is the risk to to make the gopro unusable ?
and how much tech knowledge do you need to have in order to do this ?

you can just copy what is in the youtube video to take it apart.  the electronics are tiny so there is a decent chance of ruining something.  you should not do this if you are not prepared to throw away the cost of a used hero 6

Freaking awesome bud...keep up the great work! You have my like :) - We you flying all acro or using horizon mode?

cooties   15 days ago 

ha thanks! I fly acro with really turned down rates. If I use horizon I don't like that 'bounce' when it locks level. I could get used to it, but then it'd probably screw me up for acro.

It's adorable! Got any footage yet? Are you mainly going to use it inside - the camera looks very exposed.

outdoors when it's calm. No choice it needs to be light as possible.

While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
