Things You Need To Know When Building Your Cinewhoop Freestyle Drone

Cinewhoop Frames

Ever since the Tiny Whoop craze, people have been looking for whoops frames that are a bit bigger. CineWhoop Frames gives you all of these features and more!

First, pick your frame – whether quad or hexacopter style? Then decide on any accessories to add, such as duct protection (highly recommended) and LEDs. You’ll be building before you know it, thanks to this kit’s easy build instructions!

One thing about their kits is they come with tons of spare parts just in case something goes wrong during assembly. Once assembled, test out how well each prop works by spinning them manually before attaching motors.

Hence, there aren’t any surprises later down the line when everything has already gone together nicely, but one set isn’t working. And if you want to make sure everything is working properly, pop in your FPV camera and transmitter and test that as well.

The frame itself offers plenty of space for electronics installation and mounts on both sides, installing various cameras or LEDs onto them!

Flight Controller + ESC

Cinewhoop frames are light but without a lot of power to support the weight. This is why you need ESCs that can handle higher voltages and currents than your average hobby-grade electronics.

The most popular choice for CineWhoops is Flight Controller with 20×20 stacks because it’ll be lighter in comparison to 30.5×30.5 stack systems, which typically use 6S batteries or more powerful motors/props requiring greater voltage output from the battery pack being used on them (which means they’ll have less time before these cells run out).

But if you want maximum performance, make sure whatever system components you choose will work together effectively—either by checking compatibility charts online beforehand or asking questions about power and weight on forums and Facebook groups.

You don’t want to be stuck with components that will never work together or end up being more expensive than expected!

Cinewhoop Motors

The numbers on an RC motor represent how much torque it can produce and carry with a heavier payload. For 3 inch props or heavy GoPro loadouts, we should be looking at motors of 14XX-15XX for the best performance. However, if you’re running 6S battery configurations, most people use 4-6KV Kv Motors like in our CineWhoop builds–you could go up to 7kV if your frame is compatible!

Cinewhoop Props

Props are a great way to get your quad off the ground, but which one is right for you? Test out as many props as possible and find what works best. Efficiency counts too! Make sure that it balances well with how much power it produces, or else flight time could be affected.

Noise can also be an issue, so stay on top of noise levels when testing because if they’re too loud, people might not want to hang around while we fly our drones in their town (or house).

This means less money spent on replacements because this unit comes in pairs of one clockwise rotating prop and one counterclockwise rotating prop, so there’s always an extra blade just waiting when needed! 

Lipo Batteries

Choose the battery carefully, as it impacts how your CineWhoop flies. Bigger batteries could make the flight more sluggish and heavier with less agility; a lighter one may be better when you need to move quickly or fly high up in the air for long periods. It’s important to remember that there are many choices – some common ones include 850mAh, 1050mAh, 1300 mAh LiPo batteries – so take care of its capacity and which connector goes into what input on your drone!

Selecting a battery is essential for flying any drone since the charge will no longer last after just half-hour-long flights. Choosing between different makes can help determine whether it should have higher or lower voltage for a longer flight time. Don’t forget to include a battery strap and battery plug when purchasing your lipo batteries.

FPV VTX Setup (Video transmitter)

Flying a cinewhoop is challenging, but there are some things you can do to make it easier. Having an FPV camera that has a great wide dynamic range helps immensely! The Runcam Micro Eagle 2 Pro is the best in this attribute and should be your first pick if available for purchase.

Additionally, When you are choosing a VTX (video transmitter), there are several factors to take into consideration. It should be small and lightweight so that it doesn’t add too much weight to your drone.

However, this does not mean sacrificing quality for size or power because 25mW is more than enough if the only place you plan on flying is inside concrete structures where multipath interference would happen anyway. If outside of yourself, though, higher output powers such as 200mW could come in handy (or even better at 400-600MW).

RunCam Eagle 2 Pro

RunCam Eagle 2 Pro

The RunCam Eagle 2 Pro camera is the best option for outdoor enthusiasts and extreme sports. It features a 1/1.8″ CMOS sensor that captures at 800TVL to provide good quality, crisp images in low light conditions.

Radio Receiver

A Radio Receiver is a device capable of receiving commands from a Radio Transmitter and interpreting those signals. Understanding how they work can be difficult without proper training, but there are some basics that any beginner should know about these devices before starting to fly their drone. The receiver needs to be compatible with both transmitters for communication between them to establish successfully- this means you’ll need transmitters made by the same brand as your receivers if possible!

Different frequencies also dictate whether or not two radios will work together, so make sure to check compatibility on all sides of the system (i.e., you’re working with two systems that operate at different frequency ranges).

Depending on your needs, either a 900MHz or 2.4GHz system is the right choice for you and your camera! If you’re looking to fly long distances like in cinewhoops competitions, then go with the TBS Crossfire, which has an even pricier GoPro attached- but if not, it’s just about finding what works best for you 🙂



TBS is pushing the boundaries of long-range technology with the release of its Crossfire Nano RX. This receiver has been engineered to be smaller than any other in its class and will meet your needs whether you’re a world champion or an everyday competitor!

For firmware upgrades, this receiver has you covered as well– download the latest version through your transmitter (or USB cable) and follow instructions to upgrade its settings!

Radio Transmitter or Remote

A Drone Radio Transmitter is a device that uses radio signals to transmit commands wirelessly via a set frequency over to the receiver, which is connected to the drone being remotely controlled. In other words, it’s what translates your pilot’s commands into the movement of the multirotor. An FPV transmitter transmits channels; each channel an individual action sent through for you and your aircraft! 

Roll: Moves left or right in the air, literally “rolling” up/down on a plane surface. 

Pitch: Tilts forward or backward, moving front end down (pitch downward) when pitching upwards). 

Yaw: Rotates around 360 degrees like spinning top while simultaneously changing altitude. 

Ailerons: Flips left or right in mid-air. 

Throttle: Controls engine speed. 

Elevator- Used to control your height from ground level. 

Rudder: Turn your multirotor to the left or right.
