This is the R3DWhoop Ion (Zerograv Edition) by R3DShifters https://www.r3dshifters.com/store/p24/www.r3dshifters.com/r3dwhoop-ion.html.html .
Beautiful frame. Incredibly durable.

R3DShifters recommends a dab of glue in between the camera and the camera mounting tabs to prevent jello. I used Blu-Tack and it worked great!

The only issues I ran into with this build was with the camera mount on the r3dshifters frame. It was just a little difficult to get the camera in. Other than that, this was a straight forward build.

Additional Notes:
I'd suggest running a ziptie at the back of the frame where I have. This helps to keep your battery lead from popping off. Make sure to leave some slack on the lead from ziptie to fc.

I also put a dab of liquid electrical tape on the battery lead solder points.

I ordered one of these before Christmas but am still waiting. Hoping I can get one of the new HGLRC Zeuz AIO's to fit in it. Still not sure what motors I'm going to run. I've some Betafpv 1102's and 1103's 1s kv motors and some Newbeedrone Flow 1202.5 1s-2s kv motors laying around to play with.

USPS has been having trouble getting stuff delivered. Understandably. Usually the guys at r3dshifters get us our stuff pretty fast. Hope you get your frame soon. It's really one of my favorites to fly still. Over all my whoops and miniquads. I have been experimenting with a 5" Ion they haven't released yet. It's sub 250g while loaded with a 6s battery. Thing is wild!

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
