This is the R3DWhoop Ion (Zerograv Edition) by R3DShifters https://www.r3dshifters.com/store/p24/www.r3dshifters.com/r3dwhoop-ion.html.html .
Beautiful frame. Incredibly durable.

R3DShifters recommends a dab of glue in between the camera and the camera mounting tabs to prevent jello. I used Blu-Tack and it worked great!

The only issues I ran into with this build was with the camera mount on the r3dshifters frame. It was just a little difficult to get the camera in. Other than that, this was a straight forward build.

Additional Notes:
I'd suggest running a ziptie at the back of the frame where I have. This helps to keep your battery lead from popping off. Make sure to leave some slack on the lead from ziptie to fc.

I also put a dab of liquid electrical tape on the battery lead solder points.

I ordered one of these before Christmas but am still waiting. Hoping I can get one of the new HGLRC Zeuz AIO's to fit in it. Still not sure what motors I'm going to run. I've some Betafpv 1102's and 1103's 1s kv motors and some Newbeedrone Flow 1202.5 1s-2s kv motors laying around to play with.

USPS has been having trouble getting stuff delivered. Understandably. Usually the guys at r3dshifters get us our stuff pretty fast. Hope you get your frame soon. It's really one of my favorites to fly still. Over all my whoops and miniquads. I have been experimenting with a 5" Ion they haven't released yet. It's sub 250g while loaded with a 6s battery. Thing is wild!

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..
