The Cinecube

The goal of this build was to find a good middle ground between a 3" Squirt and Naked Cinewhoop. I found the Squirt to be too big and too loud for close proximity to people flying. I also wanted to avoid the complexity of cutting down props to fit into ducts. I like how light and small the 2"ish Naked Cinewhoops are but I don't want to rip my Hero8 apart to cut weight. I used the Hero8 on my 5" freestyle rigs and it's also under warranty. Finally, I wanted to get about 3mins of flight time. With a 4s 450mah I get about 3.5mins of flight time and it weights in at about 265 grams. GoPro is powered off the balance leads using the TBS USB-C adaptor and 5v step down which saves about 25 grams.

"With a 4s 450mah I get about 3.5mins of flight time and it weights in at about 265 grams."

I find it hard to believe that this build flies for 3.5min with a 4s 450mah lipo. The reason I am saying this is because I have a 2.5" build which weights 162g including a 4s 450mah lipo and it flies for 3.5min-4min. Do you mind posting a DVR recording?

The video "Little People" is 3:20 single take and I didn't land until the first low voltage warning so I could have easily gotten more than another 10 seconds. I don't have any dvr footage laying around. When I get to it I share it with you but I can assure you I get 3.5mins no problem on a 450mah 4s.

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..
