The kit comes with an additional V2 Pusher conversion kit for those who like to upgrade the frame to V2.
Beta85X is packed with BEC board, case and adjustable mount for GoPro hero, so you can easily build a cinewhoop with GoPro and greatly minimize the weight. It flies GREAT on a 450mah 4s battery.

85X Cinewhoop with Gopro
In recent months, more and more pilots are interested in the super small, lightweight and powerful cinewhoop. Pilots like Richárd Papp and Tommy Tibajia started their cinewhoop project. Based on the stable and insane power system of Beta85X, Tommy built his Umma85 and keep sharing all his ideas in the group. If you wanna know more about cinewhoop, feel free to join us on Facebook.
>> NAKED Cinewhoop Community
For providing a great combo for FPV community, we design a BEC board which is for the naked GoPro Hero 6 perfectly. With the carbon fiber case and pluggable connector, it is easier to plug in and out. Meanwhile, we designed the adjustable camera mount of 0-50°, it can be used for the different flying modes of insane flying or slowing flying.
The idea of GoPro Lite
Based on the discussion of the cinewhoop, we designed a BEC board and a fitting case for Naked GoPro Hero 6/7 to make it as a whole GoPro Lite camera. With a pluggable connector and a lightweight of 29g, easier to install on your cinewhoop for FPV filming.
So what is the special of the BEC board? It is integrated with the 5V@2A BEC, the stock GoPro buttons, LED and remote recording, solving the problem of the unstable power supply and redundant FPC connect way. The current BEC board fits for GoPro Hero 6 and Hero 7 Black.
How to Setup Remote Record
Pilot could use the switch on radio transmitter to start/stop record. Some more configuration needed.
For example, if you use F4 FC V2.0 in the drone, like the 95X whoop drone, the connection diagram is shown below. The yellow cable (FC B12 pin pad) is just for the remote record.
We use the Pinio function in Betaflight to control record. First, setup the Pinio function of the B12 pin in the FC board.
resource FLASH_CS 1 NONE
resource PINIO 1 B12
set pinio_box = 40,255,255,255
Next, map one of the switch channels in your radio transmitter to this Pinio (aka USER1). As shown below, we map the AUX4 channel in the radio transmitter to USER1 Pinio. The cursor in the orange zone means button released and white zone means pressed. So keep the cursor in the orange zone in default.
Third, check if the Pinio function works. Change the switch and make the cursor move from the orange zone to the white zone, and finally back to the orange zone. Now you could check the LED status to know if the record starts. Use the same process to stop recording.
If you use the 12A F4 AIO FC board, like the 85X whoop drone, you will use the LED_STRIP pin (aka A08 pin pad) for the Pinio function.
resource LED_STRIP 1 NONE
resource PINIO 1 A08
set pinio_box = 40,255,255,255
