Finally did a build with the frame I fell in love with when I first discovered FPV but couldn't justify/afford until now :3

850g with GoPro & 2200mAh 4S, can break 10 minutes flight time.

Hah, good for them :) I've posted it enough places now it's essentially fair game for anybody to use!

Hey. How do you find the HobbyRC battery?

I quite like them - they have less punch than HobbyKing Graphenes (the other 4S packs I fly), but they don't sag so violently at the end like the Graphenes do. With the HobbyRC packs once my voltage warnings start to go off I have time to finish my circuit, do a little punch out & then land safely. With the Graphenes with the same voltage warnings, I barely have enough time to get straight back & land immediately.

Awesome, thanks. HobbyRC are local to me (although they don't have an physical store) so I wanted to support them but couldn't find many reviews on their batteries.

Thanks! Striving for perfect joints is probably why if I live streamed a build it would be 12+ hours O_o

We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
