Sold
Cinestar 8 with 3 axis camera gimbal

Selling one of my Cinestar 8 copters.

Used just a few times as a backup for my other cinestar for professional work
Basically RTF just add your own RX and TX for the copter.
(If you are a dragon link user then i'll throw in the RX) so basically bind and fly.
comes with a DX8 for the camera gimbal.
Frame is 100% carbon fiber.
DJI WK-M flight controller with GPS and all functions related.
Auto level / position hold / height hold / Return to home / auto land / carefree mode / Fail safe mode..etc...
Avroto Motors 770Kv 3-5S
3 axis camera gimbal with DX8 Radio for gimbal control
unlimited panning / 180 degree of tilt (look up or straight down)
Vibration dampener design on the camera gimbal
Heavy Lift copter from a gopro to red epic. easily lifts any canon camera.
She is extremely stable and perfect for cinematography or any AP work.


Asking 5,600 as she is only a month or two old.
a complete setup RTF would cost over 10K

I don't really take this rig out very far,So i can't really tell you the best antenna position for distance.

i use this copter within the boundary of the video shoot what ever that may be. usually on set it's not that far.

i use dragon link because with all the equipment and camera gear as well as the two video down links there is a lot of noise coming from the equipment. i don't want to risk losing the radio signal of the copter.
i would rather lose the signal to the video or something like that.

dragon link has never once let me down. it's the most reliable radio link i have ever used. where as JR and futaba both are easily susceptible to interference and i have lost a few copters because of this. i'm not willing to risk a crash with such an expensive investment and camera gear. so i go dragon link.

Interesting your using Slow fly props, are you getting smooth flight? Only been able to get smooth flight with electrics like 11x5 or 12x6 with DJI WKM on my CineStar which kills battery time.

Hello Dolby,

I have had zero issues getting smooth flight with SF props. I have two Cinestar 8's and a Cinestar 6 and all of them are running SF props. i agree with you that the 11X5 kills battery life for sure. i balance every prop meticulously and have no problems at all getting smooth flight or footage. depending on the camera setup that day i switch from 12's to 14's. still no issue. as long as the blades are perfectly balanced there is no issue. i use to use MK which was ok but the WK-M performs better for me in all aspects.

yeah.... i hear you. I love and covet the CS design. Removable arms and that gimbal is the best in the buisness right now!

I just dont have the cash..... I have spent to much on different airframes and setups at the moment. Best of luck selling, its a great product so it should sell itself
