Just finished my build. It flies like it’s on rails. With plenty of power. And it’s silent and nearly vibration free.
It folds in the best possible way so that it is easy to carry in a bag or suitcase.
I’ll post videos later.
A video and a story about how I got rid of vibrations.
It carries my GoPro with clear jello-free images. But I still need to do some work on the smallest vibrations if I want to film with my Canon S100.
