My Zuul Superbeast has been running for quite a long time, I have replaced several parts and now I decided to get more into acro flying. I really like the GoPro cage as this keeps my GoPro safe from sure destruction. I prefer my GoPro is protected over my flight camera as the swift is much cheaper to replace. This is also why I refer to this quadcopter as Canti which is the tv head robot from FLCL.
The four in one ESC is also the power distribution board and is capable of running Dshot600. I decided to add bullet connectors because the Kiss FC is so sensitive to vibration that everytime I crash and a motor gets bent it causes it to have a twitch in flight. The bullet connectors save me time when swapping motors in the field since I am still practicing to fly acro, once I feel more confident as I am crashing less and less I will probably upgrade motors and direct solder them on.

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..
