A rebuild of my Beerotor130 where I broke one of the arms. It came out pretty well. I am very please with the performance. It is a decent lightweight 4s (Dinogy 600mAh 4S) flier.

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..
