This is a mega-cinewhoop frame not unlike any other 3” ducted design. It is NOT intended to be an acrobatic machine. It is intended for slow-ish, stable, controlled flight with the payload of a GoPro Hero 8 or similar with a TPU mount.
This is a mega-cinewhoop frame not unlike any other 3” ducted design. It is NOT intended to be an acrobatic machine. It is intended for slow-ish, stable, controlled flight with the payload of a GoPro Hero 8 or similar with a TPU mount. The frame is specifically designed to be lightweight (by comparison to others), durable, easy to build/repair and cost effective to maintain. It has two 20x20 mounting platforms and one Toothpick style whoop board mount (two separate stack platforms). It is designed to fit analog components or the Vista unit. The GoPro/HD mounting platform is the same as on the CineGlide and Fouride. Camera mounts for one will be easy to swap from frame to frame.
This platform performs best with the FPVCycle 2203 3450kv motor, 4S 1100mah battery, V2 Ducts, and 25mm standoffs because the V2 Ducts are shorter. The basic ducts are from the CLOUD-149. They provide adequate prop protection/safety for most situations and are decently durable while being extremely cost effective. Unfortunately, even with the genuine FPVCycle 2203 3450kv motor, you will still have some washout in extreme situations and minor yaw lock problems in gusty or confined environments such as a narrow corridor/hallway. The V3 Ducts fix most of these issues and are a bolt on replacement for the original ducts. If you are an experienced FPV pilot with developed fine motor control skills in this area, you will appreciate the V3 Ducts quite a bit. If you are novice to intermediate level, you’ll definitely notice a difference but it may not be quite as significant to you.
Compared to a typical Cinewhoop with your standard issue ~1506 and any prop, this platform running FPVCycle 2203 3450kv and the V2 ducts is dramatically improved. The motors account for about 75% of that improvement. Dropping the standoff height to 25mm is just icing on the cake if you care to do so
