Skystars is offering a new Cinewhoop. A Cinewhoop is a small multirotor with propeller protection, which is equipped with an HD camera. The Angela145 4K is not that small, since its motor motor diagonal is 14.5 cm. This is what allows it to carry a GoPro HD camera. It is based on a carbon structure with 3 mm thick arms. The motors are 1408 to 3800KV brushless motors for Gemfan three-bladed propellers secured in duct-type protections. The ESC is a 4-in-1 35A DShot600 powered by a flight controller based on an F4 processor. It is flashed with Betaflight firmware, and offers an active OSD.
How does the video part justify the 4K mention? The Angela145 4K is based on a RunCam Hybrid 4K camera, a model composed of 2 cameras. One films in analog to ensure the return of the image in real time and pilot in FPV. The other films in 4K at 30 frames per second or 2.7K at 60 frames per second, and stores the sequences on a microSD memory card on board the camera. The FPV part is completed by a 5.8 GHz transmitter compatible with 48 channels and capable of transmitting at 25 mW (the maximum authorized in France), 200 mW and 500 mW.
The Angela145 4K comes with a TPU bracket for a GoPro Hero 6, 7 or 8 camera. What’s the point since the camera already films in 4K? The quality of the images from the RunCam does not match that of a GoPro, especially in the absence of a 4K mode at 60 frames per second and stabilized. Or GoPro’s Superview which offers an extra wide angle. There are therefore potentially 3 cameras on board the aircraft! Who says better?
The Angela145 4K is to be powered with 3S or 4S batteries from 1500 to 1800 mAh, according to the technical data sheet, with an XT30 plug. In practice, it is likely that batteries with a little less capacity will be more suitable. The device is delivered without a radio receiver, or with an X-XSR, XM+ or R9MM receiver from FrSky. It will be available from $292.59 at Banggood Store.
