What was their total thrust to weight ratio?

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.

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..
