If you were not sure which Cinewhoop to choose, here is a newcomer, which will further complicate your decision-making process! More seriously, this nano racer rests on a carbon structure of 8.5 cm diagonal, therefore small, with arms 1.5 cm thick and fairings of nylon duct type propellers. The heart of the aircraft is an AF412 Lite flight controller from HBFPV, based on an F4 processor and associated with a 12A ESC 4 in 1. It is flashed with Betaflight and offers an active OSD. This electronics drives HBFPV 1103 to 7000KV motors for 1.6 inch three-bladed Gemfan GF1635 propellers.
The video part is provided by a Baby Turtle hybrid camera from Caddx, capable of providing 800TVL video feedback in real time and recording images in FullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) at 60 frames per second on a microSD card. Its very wide FOV, 170°, with a 1.8 mm lens. It has the WDR function to increase the color dynamics. Is it enough to make very beautiful images? No, the definition is a bit tight and it lacks stabilization, but the quality is sufficient to have fun and keep a memory of the flights. The FPV return is provided by a 5.8 GHz video transmitter compatible with 48 frequencies and capable of transmitting at 25 mW (the maximum authorized in France), 100 mW, 200 mW or 400 mW to go further (where it is authorized). The antenna is a dipole connected to an IPEX connector.
The device delivered without radio receiver, or with a receiver already installed to choose from a compatible FrSky D16 EU, D16 Non-EU, D8, Flysky FS-RX2A, DSMX / DSM2 or Futaba S-FHSS. It is necessary to envisage a battery of 3S or 4S of 450 mAh (or approaching) with an XT30 connector. HBFPV expects an autonomy of 4 to 7 minutes depending on the piloting and the flight conditions. How much does it cost ? The DC40 HD V1 is available from $167.69 at Banggood.
