The GoPro 8 has established itself as one of the most widely used cameras in the field of FPV. Compared to newer generations, it boasts a lighter weight while maintaining stable gyro data that can be effectively processed with Gyroflow or RealsteadyGo. Additionally, the deceased or naked GoPro 8 has gained popularity within the Sub250g and Cinewhoop categories. GEPRC has produced a very good BEC and case for GoPro 8 and I have been using it in my Sub250g and Cinewhoop quads.

However, I desired to utilize the naked GoPro in heavier quads, such as those used for freestyle or long-range flights. Personally, I have a strong preference for lighter quads due to their increased agility, longer flight times, and reduced susceptibility to damage during crashes. Unfortunately, this led to a few broken naked GoPros along the way.

To address this issue, I took the initiative to design a carbon fiber cage that offers exceptional protection for the camera. In fact, I confidently assert that it provides superior safeguarding compared to the original case. Thanks to this specially designed cage, my freestyle quad has endured numerous crashes while effectively shielding the camera from damage. Even when my heavy 6" quad took a fall after colliding with a power line, resulting in damaged motors, my GoPro remained unscathed.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight and durable carbon fiber design; Just 14g
  • Easy assembly and disassembly
  • Front and back protection
  • Accessible buttons and ports
  • Compatible with GEPRC ND filters and lens protection

After rigorously testing this cage for over a year, I have refined its design to ensure exceptional performance. To share the benefits, I have made several available for others to enjoy. If you're interested, please don't hesitate to reach out.

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! 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..
