Halloa poeple 🙂

Soooo! A new FPV quad from GepRC huh.. Have you had / tried GepRC stuff? I have quite a few by now I must admit :$
Okee so this Cygnet is one of the first of a Wave of smaller quads we will see that have an onboard 1080P recorder.. Handy cause the added weight of an action-cam kills the fun in smaller quads 🙂

Link to this quad: GepRC CX3 Cygnet

In this topic I'll post a couple of video's BUT feel free to ad your own 🙂

All kinds of planes, multi rotors, heli's, cars & boats..

Dewd no kidding ... I've had this very quad sitting in my basket for few weeks now but afraid to pull the trigger.

I am torn between this and the mark 2. The downside that I can find is battery time id nominal but not a deal breaker.  I could only find one source for this size 3" and pitch propeller.

Otherwise I am big time impressed with the frame style, the runcam split and 4s capable.

I actually appreciate your timing on this one... thank you Dutch
Fly like your mad at it.

Could be worse: mine has been 'sitting' on a boat for about 1.5 months :@ :$  
Am I glad I now have it though: yes! It looks as gorgeous as I thought it would.. And the onboard video is rock solid.. or what? 🙂 

Plot twist: the Hubsan H123D X4 Jet's propellors might be a very good option for it 😉

Not the review yet this video.. but for a video quad the flight time is allso important.. right? 
So.. I did me a max-flight-time test yesterday:

It's certainly a smooth cinematographer! I'm afraid I already ordered my first FPV Racer last week. I hope I've made the right choice:

At a glance it looks to be in a similar tier - very close in price and all. Just an extra 100mm in size, with bigger engines. It gets windy where I am so I wanted something that could muscle through it. Do you think I would see similar smoothness to the Cygnet with this? 🙂

Well yeah the quad itself is definately capable of flying like that 🙂 The rest is up to You 😃

I was curious how this model settled in for you.  Something is it a goto item or just something different that was fun to try out.

the quad has actually been great / uneventful 🙂  It's had it's fare share of crashes offcourse so I have replaced props, but that's it..
Personally I do find myself flying more powerfull quads more, but for a cinematic flight the Cygnet is excellent 🙂 

The thing with more power is.. you (at least I) can't help but Allways use it.. for instance.. here is me flying a 5" 6S quad: 
 

it could probably be shooth etc.. but it won't when I fly a beast like that 😋 
Sooo.. the Cygnet would have worked a lot better for this chase..

Hi DutchRC                                                                                                                                                                                                   Great review as usual and I am now seriously considering buying one of these beauties but before I take the plunge I have to ask,,,,is the Runcam FPV 4.3 or 16.9 or is it switchable ?  Your answer will make the [ shall I buy it ] decision for me lol   cheers mate.

Thanks man 🙂  I appreciate that

okee.. the FPV-feed is 4:30 and the 1080P recording is 16:9 .. 

You can see that over here as well:

Already been on the Runcam website and it clearly states that the FPV aspect ratio is 16.9/4.3 switchable but YouTube reviews of this quad state that it is 4.3 fixed. Please see photo.  Confusing lol   cheersRuncam.jpg

Regardless of that....

Here are my long-term findings with the 3" Cygnet.. I have to ad that have one from the first batch (Not a pre-production sample).. 
By now the stack has been updates, as you probably know...
