I have always been fascinated by different frames that were designed by my friend LXC. I'm always using his frames for Video projects and flying freestyle in general.

I pitched to him an idea of being able to convert my freestyle frame to a cinewhoop style frame.

And this is the result! LXC BIGGIE 4" Cinewhoop!!!

This can be used with the 4" LXC Freestyle frame. I hope he makes a 5" version in the future.

The design of the frame is very nice and yet simple. The arms are connected to the frame with 6 screws and pressnuts in the bottom plate. This will eliminate any play with the arms and will allow swapping arms with ease.

I really like the ducts as it has cut outs for the arms, and you don't need cable ties for the motor wires.

I used components of my spare race quad and converted it to 6S. I'm using a brother hobby 2306 2450kv motor with motor_output_limit to use it in 6s paired with the HQ props 4x4.5x3 (it's quire rare).

Unfortunately, full size cams are not supported if you plan to use it inside the frame. micro cams will be best for this setup.

After assembly and initial hover test, I can say that this setup is very powerful and efficient, Hope to upload a HD video soon.

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..

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..
