Hi, I'm thinking about giving the build a go!

I'm looking at the 3D printed camera mount + base and there are several versions in the thingiverse page. Are you are using the Beta85X base?

yep, that's the one! and use the inner holes, the ones that line up with the FC mounts

I've got an Insta360 Go on the way. How do you like it?

the stabilisation is amaaaazing for the size. really cool little device which opens up a whole new world for these micros. Pros: ease of use...from shooting to posting...all done in their app, including a library of music. the FOV is absolutely AWESOME and is my favourite part of this camera. the 1:1 format gives incredible amount of minimally distorted field of view. I've taken some of that footage and did an artificial superview to 4:3 and it looks pretty awesome. being able to download it immmediately onto your iphone is pretty awesome. Size & Weight - surprisingly tiny.
Cons:
Price pretty expensive for what it is, but actually the fit & finish is reflected in the price. 8gb is just not enough. two 5 min flights and one one 2 min and you're just about full. 25fps 1080p - although it is good quality, I feel at this price point it should be at least 1440p and 60fps. No way to use ND filters.

I'm scheming some cool edits with this camera but I just can't get out to fly due to the lockdown. I feel the stabilised videos that are getting pumped out these days are a bit sterile unless there are tight gaps and high speed proximity.

some footage with it taped to the bottom of a mobula7 :P

Some good points there. Great to hear the FOV is wide enough. I was really disappointed with the Tarsier FOV. For the price it really should do more than 1080p, but I think this is the first non-GoPro do to stabilization well. The size and weight are also great! Can't wait to try it out. I've got the Eachine Viswhoop coming as well. I thought it'd be the perfect platform for this.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
