The new CineTank QuadCopter is poist to be a success
As I sit here and design my website, I can only imagine what the Flying Cinema team is feeling with the great reception the FPV community has shown to they new product, the CineTank. I first saw this beast of a quad copter at the Central Florida FPV meet late last year. The unit that I saw was not the final version of the product and I couldn't help but think: What else can these guys improve on this frame. The frame is light, super strong....I know you hear this all the time from other frames, but until you see a copter crash and do cartwheels, just to be picked up, get fitted with new props and get right back on the air, you haven't seen a strong frame.
I actually live very close to where the CineTank is manufactured, so when the team invited me to check out their production, the geeky, FPV addicted child in me couldn't resist. These three guys (Jose, Andrew and David) spent months designing and putting real engineering concepts in the final iteration of this quad copter. All while building a CNC cutter from a pile of boxes and instruction manuals.
About a month ago, I purchased one of the first frames that came out of the CNC table, and I have to admit, it's not the easiest built, it is also not the hardest, but it is a build that will take you time. (just like any other frame worth building).
If you don't want to go through the pain of putting a together, or just don't have the time and don't want to wait, you can get the CineTank fully ready to fly at UrbanDrones.com
