Unboxing and First Impressions
Upon unboxing, you’ll find the drone itself and various accessories, including extra HQ 3-inch three-bladed props, a carbon fiber keychain, extra screws and keys, battery straps, antenna tubes, battery pads, and a Micro USB cable. GEPRC also provides a 4S 6S naked GoPro adapter and mount. The package also includes an impressively detailed and well-organized manual for both the drone and the flight controller.
The drone itself is beautifully designed and feels premium. It’s made of strong, high-quality materials that give it an industrial feel, which is a step up from the previous version.
The Cinebot30 has an aluminum side bracket on the camera to protect the camera lens from crash. Even though pilots do not typically do a lot of aerial tricks with a cinewhoop, it’s still a nice addition.
Specs and Features
The Cinebot30 I am reviewing is equipped with a Nebula Pro and Caddx Vista, ExpressLRS 2.4GHz receiver, and SpeedX2 1804 2450KV 6S motors. Although the drone weighs 220 grams without the battery and camera, it will exceed the 250-gram limit once you add those components.
The AIO flight controller features 45-amp ESCs, and the drone has an impressive LEDs around the prop guards that adds a touch of style and makes it perfect for night flying. It’s a shame that you can’t change the color of the LED though.
There is blackbox on the Cinebot AIO FC, that allows you to conveniently troubleshoot and tune your drone.
Binding and Flying
Binding the Cinebot30 is a breeze, and its LED lights can be easily turned off and on with a switch on your radio.The GEPRC Cinebot30 comes well tuned from the factory. It flies very stable and smooth, without any jello or vibration.
I tested various battery configurations, including 6S 1100mAh, 6S 1300mAh, despite the added weight, the drone performed surprisingly well, delivering smooth and agile flights. I also tried flying it with a full GoPro 11 Camera, it can still fly with it but you can tell it’s struggling quite a bit with the extra weight. A naked GoPro or a Gopro bones would be better choices.
The GEPRC Cinebot30 is an outstanding FPV Cinewhoop that offers a premium flying experience out of the box. It has a durable design and impressive performance. It’s perfect for FPV drone pilots of all levels, who appreciate quality and versatility. The only downside is that it’s not designed specifically to carry a full GoPro, but with some creativity and adjustments, it can still achieve excellent results. Overall, the Cinebot30 is a fantastic drone that I highly recommend.
