Been thinking about building a Cinewhoop for some time now, but really didn't want to folk out for complete rig. Bite the bullet eventually and bought the Shedrones Squirt V2 frame, realizing my GEP-RC Sparrow (link below) components would fit nicely, I teared the parts from it and installed them into the Squirt frame.

The GEP-RC Sparrow is really neat RTF build, with impressive power to weight ratio i was fairly confident it would perform adequately, its over powered will apparently clock 170km/h!

Build weight :
230g - frame/components
370g - " " + battery/GoPro Hero Session 5

*planning to swap out the FC and ESC's for a hobbywing stack shortly..!

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. 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..
