Been thinking about building a Cinewhoop for some time now, but really didn't want to folk out for complete rig. Bite the bullet eventually and bought the Shedrones Squirt V2 frame, realizing my GEP-RC Sparrow (link below) components would fit nicely, I teared the parts from it and installed them into the Squirt frame.

The GEP-RC Sparrow is really neat RTF build, with impressive power to weight ratio i was fairly confident it would perform adequately, its over powered will apparently clock 170km/h!

Build weight :
230g - frame/components
370g - " " + battery/GoPro Hero Session 5

*planning to swap out the FC and ESC's for a hobbywing stack shortly..!
(this is the V2 version, I had the V1 of the GEPRC Sparrow.., the parts below are the approximate equivalents)

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
