It's the same y6 whoop idea that I posted earlier ( https://rotorbuilds.com/build/29434 ) but I added a twist in it. Now it supports head tracker so I can look down and it also moves the naked gopro. It has smaller vertical height and more cleaner cable management.

Also my intention was to achieve the smallest vertical height as possible with a naked gopro, I really like how packed this form. The flying performance is similar to any other 2.5 whoop, with the two battery it can do 5-6 minute long flights.

Hey...thats an impressive amount of design work. Keep up the great work. Would be cool if you could post a video of the head tracker in action! :) What are you using to move the cams...a servo?

Thank you! Yes it's a normal servo :) I will post video if I get used to it, it's way more trickier to control than I thought. Every time I look down, my muscle memory tries to pull it out from the "dive" :)

Or maybe the headtracker should affect the gopro but not the fpv camera

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..
