Emuwhoop85

My mad whoop that smells like old boots and goes like stink. Its built for outdoor fun so the extra weight doesn't bother me too much and I can enjoy the freedom of extended range and clear view without being bothered too much by wind.

Its loosely based on the Shutterbug85 recipe but built a little differently to suit my own preferences. The biggest differentiators being that this one uses an old-school 16x16 stack, heavier but better FPV kit, a long range receiver, prop screws and different props.

The frame actually accommodates the stack quite nicely. All you have to do is drill out the mounting holes for the 16x16 stack in the bottom of the frame's "electronics well" and then install the stack in the well upside down witha care taken to cut out a notch from each hoop where the ESC sits just to get the build height down a bit.

Here is some flight footage.

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..

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..
