Kopis CInewhoop concept

Decided to try to design a new ducts to Kopis Cinewhoop.
Kopis frame is very good platform to my purpose, since it is quite low prized, frame is really rigid but original ducts are crap :P
I designed a hollow double duct to replace the original hard plastic ducts. I am aiming to have more durability and softer crashes.
Bigger ducts means, that i had to redesign the cam cage plates to bring the camera forward. I also remixed the GoPro mount to come more forward.
I designed a simple antenna mount to Caddx Vista (Rush) antenna to rear. Also some landing pads.
One duct weights about 60g. It sounds a lot but if you take e.g. Taycan: Two ducts weight alone 15g each, then foam, 6 standoffs, top and bottom sandwich plates -> goes very close to this. I weighted my Bumblebee build to same weight with this design, about 350g without gopro and lipo.

All printable parts are here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4235898

I use some old Gemfan Hulkie 5055 props now and they work very well trimmed close to duct.

SETTINGS:
I have the Betaflight version 4.1.5 and latest blheli32 flashed
Motor timing is set to Auto and pwm frequency is 48hHz in blheli32.
I run Dshot600 with 8k/8k, because i use the F7 fc.
Rpm filters are on.

I copied my settings (shown in the pics) from cinewhoopers Facebook page. My bird flies like a dream with these! Super smooth!
Removed the previous settings from this text, because these new are WAY better! :)

I was about to strip this quad for parts and make a new one, the ducts were so bad. Gonna give it another shot with your new and improved ducts after seeing this!

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

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..
