Is anyone still building 3D aerobatic quads?

Hey folks! I was at a heli fun fly last weekend and someone was flying a really impressive quad with reversing props. I had one of the Blade things way back when that had the "3D firmware" and it was nothing like what he was flying! I didn't get a chance to have an in-depth conversation with him, so I don't know the details of what it was. All I know is it seemed to be a 5", and it was freaking impressive! Like, rolling circles, rainbows... it was awesome.

I've done some searching around, but it seems like that was a fad that died. I'd love to build something like that, but can't find much recent info. Is it still a thing?

3d miniquads are not dead.

Its just like 5 people left sticking with it.

And recently minchin

There's a few others also.

Here is likely one of the most recent guide videos on the setup process.

Excellent! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. FPV is fun, but I'm a 40+ year LOS guy and would love to build a 3D quad to abuse in the yard.
