Stretched Whoop

Because I've never seen a 1.9" stretched-X with ducted propeller guards, I decided to make one.
I used the Eyas SX-2 stretched-X frame with aluminium propeller guards I took of the Toad 88 frame. They're supposed to fit 2" props, but they don't.

The SX-2 frame has the camera well protected and high up, so you don't have the ducts in view. Without the prop guards it can be fitted with 2.3" props.
It's a strong frame with replaceable arms, also available in a 3" version with 3mm or 4mm arms and dirt cheap. They even have slits on the back which perfectly fit the HGLRC double LED and buzzer board.

Powered by Sunnysky 1106 - 8000kV's, on 2s it should be a serious whoop.
Somehow the motors don't work on Betaflight and although it arms, they won't spin. So working on that at the moment.
Maiden video will follow as soon as baby flies.

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..
