The manufacturer AuroraRC offers a new Cinewhoop, which is the latest addition to the long list of those already available on the market. With a 19 cm engine to engine diagonal, it is equipped with a DJI FPV Air Unit placed vertically at the rear. A positioning used by Rotor Riot, but also by Flywoo with the Chaser 138 HD… to which AuroraRC seems to have also borrowed the protective foams around the ducts. It measures 28 x 23 x 5.5 cm for a weight of 457 grams (with FPV Air Unit and camera but without battery).
The propellers are Gemfan 4032 three-bladed propellers powered by RCinPower GTS V2 2207 ç 1860KV brushless motors and an ESC 4 in 1 of 40A BLheli_S. The flight controller is a F722 Dual BT from GePRC, whose particularity is to have a Bluetooth module to practice wireless settings via SpeedyBee and Betaflight apps on smartphone. A buzzer completes the equipment.
The unit is sold “naked” without video equipment, or with an FPV Air Unit coupled to the DJI camera for video feedback and radio control. The Bluetooth module and the vertical positioning of the FPV Air Unit avoid the physical access problems to the USB connectors often found on Cinewhoops, making updates a bit tedious. Note that the antennas are little out of the structure.
The MamFu4 Duct is offered at $259 without FPV Air Unit and at $429 pre-equipped at Banggood. AuroraRC recommends batteries from 4S to 6S, from 800 to 1300 mAh with an XT60 socket.
