HappyModel Cine8 85mm CineWhoop Build

Been wanting something to carry around an Insta360 for a little while now. Saw this HappyModel Cine8 and figured for the price I'd give it a shot. Build is really straight forward and super easy since there's no soldering required. The included assembly instructions leave quite a bit to be desired, but it's simple enough to figure out how it all goes together.

The flight controller arrives configured for props out, so if you assemble it with the motors with the red dots on the connectors as motors two, and three then you won't have to change motor directions in BLHeli. The Whoop feels really solid once assembly is complete. The 1202.5 8000kv motors are also quite smooth and on the included 3s Tattu battery there is plenty of power on tap.

I've only had a chance to get a couple quick flights on it so far, but I'm pretty impressed with how well it flies. It doesn't feel quite as heavy in the air as I was expecting, and I'm confident that it will be able to get some great footage with the Insta360 on it. I'll update this after I've spent more time flying it.
