2 min read

When it comes to building your Cinewhoop, you need a tiny camera. Insta360 GO is the world’s smallest stabilized camera. That makes it ideal for FPV drones, especially those of the tiny whoop variety.

What is a Cinewhoop?

For the uninitiated, Cinewhoop drones are a relatively new type of drone. They are a form of “FPV drone” a super agile form factor that allows you wear a headset to see what your drone sees. Cinewhoops are smaller, more stable and typically safer due to the guards around the blades. They’re much more agile than your standard consumer drone and If you opt for a “Tiny Whoop” (the even smaller variety), you can fly places you’d never be able to with even some of the larger FPV drones.

Three reasons why Insta360 GO is best-in-class for Cinewhoop.

1. It’s got world-class stabilization.

GO comes packing FlowState Stabilization. So that no matter how shaky your flight is, GO will smooth out the footage. Usually you’d be stuck with shaky or low-res footage on tiny whoop drones.

2. It’s the size of your thumb.

GO’s size is super important here. You can even fix it onto the tiny so-called “Toothpick” FPV micro drones to record incredibly stable, HD quality footage. That’d be impossible with an ordinary action camera, or even a Session, which weights four times as much.

3. It’s full HD.

GO Shoots in full HD. High quality cinewhoop content without compromise on weight, size or stabilization.

Insta360 GO FPV Mode: How to Shoot

FPV Mode allows you to shoot for up to 5 minutes (that’s plenty for the flight time limit most FPV drones have). To turn on FPV mode, just open the Insta360 GO app and connect your GO. Under “Recording length”, select “5 min (FPV mode)”. Then, mount GO on your drone press your GO to start shooting.
