    Just joined the Cinetank Owners Club, received my frame yesterday afternoon and spent last night bolting the frame together and mounting the motors ( used LocTite ).
    Going to run it on the standard arms and 8"or 9" props to start with and see how it goes, may upgrade to longer arms, different motors and bigger props later on.
    Spent a fair bit of time checking 4S battery sizes trying to find one that will fit neatly in between the top and bottom plates on the clean section. Think I have finally settled on a ZIPPY Compact 4500mAh 4S 35C.
    That one should allow enough space in the forward part of the clean section to mount the Pixhawk, video transmitter. Now it's on to soldering up the Power Distribution Board and Esc's tomorrow.

    Current Build Specs:
    Turnigy XP D2830-11 1000kv motors
    30Amp Afro Esc's flashed to BLHeli
    HQ 8x5 or 9x5 Multirotor Props (Pending Testing)
    Pixhawk Flight Controller
    Ublox Neo-M8N GPS
    915MHz Telemetry Radios
    FrSky D4RII Reciever
    Tarranis X9D and Nexus 7 Tablet for Control

    FPV Gear:
    Fatshark
    Dominator V2
    Boscam TS832 5.8G 600mW 32CH
    Sony Super HAD CCD 600TVL Super Mini

    Found I had to go over the dirty section side plates and top and bottom plates with a flat needle file to get them to sit right as it looks like the tool on the CNC Cutter had wandered a bit during cutting. Other than that the Frame was cut very well apart from a hole that hadn't been drilled on the dirty section top plate but wasn't a real big issue.


    Discovered that Carbon Fiber splinters are bloody difficult to extract from fingers after picking up one from the Carbon Tubes for the arms. Made sure I hit the holes and ends of the carbon tubes with a file and sandpaper before I went any further after that.

    The Cinetank frame is great for having space to mount everything, it's huge after cramming gear in to a mini quad frames.

    I have been taking photos during the process so I can post a build log later to help out others.

    Welcome to the club!
    I was at FliteFest on Thursday, flying my CineTank Mk2. Lots and lots of people came around to check it out, and I spent the whole day telling people how great the CineTank frame is, and how wonderful the guys at Flying Cinema are. So here's hoping I made a few new recruits to the club!

    The CT looks so cool that I had a lot of people loitering around trying to snap photos of it sitting on the table. I was happy to just hand the quad to them and let people take a look for themselves. Everybody was impressed with the design and structure of the CT.

    I was only able to be there on Thursday, and it rained steadily from about 1PM until 8PM. I only got to fly six batteries through my CineTank in the morning before the rain started. But the atmosphere was so friendly and fun and it was great to fly FPV with the guys from Stone Blue Airlines and Video Aerial Systems. (They let me try out some of their antennas; the Airblade 5.8 antennas are amazing! I bought a set on the spot immediately after trying them out.) I spent most of the day in the build tent, building a FliteTest Bloody wonder, and showing off my CineTank to curious folks.

    The guys from MultiGP were there, managing the FPV frequencies, and they did it very well.

    FliteFest is a wonderful event. I haven't gotten around to editing my footage from Thursday, but I've got some decent shots of flying through the FPV racecourse, and some high-up overviews of the festival. Flying through the course with airgates made me REAAAAAALLLLY want to build a Tankito.

    Don't let Holgate see that or he will want you to do some hedge trimming for him

    Trees wont be an issue with all those props and those big honking motors.
