Already tested powerloop?

What was their total thrust to weight ratio?

MrRed   May 20, 2018  

A150-10 motors are rated for 20lbs on the Hacker website. Even with 6, there's no way they could lift that much weight, right? Am I missing something? A200-8 seem more likely with 44lbs quad lift.

Maybe a paper-loop or toilet-roll?

Thanks for suggestions but I finished mapping out the naming. The core constituents will be a powerloop and powerpoop. Then depending on the consistency at the time of execution, it could then be labelled a tootsie-roll or a swirled pudding plop. If it's fluffy, it will be a pastrami mommy. Don't ask, I don't understand that one either.

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..

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.

There's more artistic freedom and..
