The Money Shot Mini is a first of it's kind, poised to revolutionize how you capture aerial footage. Our design has roots in the X Class FPV Drone racing world, where we - Catalyst Machineworks - dominate all competition. Meet the new and improved version 2 MoneyShot Mini! This new version uses the same design and manufacturing philosophies that made the V1 an industry leader. How could we make something so damn good even better? Find out what has changed and improved below.

What changed from V1 to V2: 

  • Flight control software was updated to allow for RTH on command, RTH in the event of a failsafe, and position hold on command
  • Configuration moved from 9" X8 to 10" Y6 producing more power with less props. This saved 250g of mass while improving aerodynamics 
  • Motors have been updated from 3115 to 3120. This is a stator volume increase of 25%
  • Lipos are reconfigured to mount to the bottom of the craft on a single quick release tray instead of two trays (one top / one bottom) as with the V1
  • Two voltage options are now available. 8s and 12s 
  • Two flight pack power-in plug options are available. XT90 and AS150 on the same craft
  • An angle indicator has been added to the FPV camera
  • Arm airfoils have been added to the arms to reduce turbulent airflow
  • Easy remote flight controller USB access has been added 
  • There is no longer a separate dedicated lipo to power the HD FPV system. We use a high quality reliable UBEC
  • More voltage out options are available to power your cinema camera. 12VDC, 14VDC, or 16VDC

Full Features List: 

  • No limitation on camera type or lens combo used. Fly anything you want such as the Red Komodo, Zcam, Black Magic Pocket 6K, GH5, or similar 
  • Capable of extremely agile maneuvers not possible with traditional heavy lift drone / gimbal systems
  • True RTH (return to home), failsafe RTH, and position hold
  • High voltage power system produces a max of 62 LBS of thrust 
  • Max suggested payload (camera/lens) of 6 LBS
  • Top speed of 99+ MPH ***FAA approval required past 99mph***
  • Very high cruising speeds
  • Flight time up to 12 minutes (depends on lipo size used)
  • Both XT90 and AS150 flight pack power-in plug options
  • FPV camera angle indicator
  • Arm air foils
  • Remote FC USB access
  • New cinema camera power module with 12VDC, 14VDC, or 16VDC power out
  • Most reliable FPV cinema drone on the planet 
  • Commercial grade electronic speed controllers and power distribution 
  • ESC's and PDB are conformal coated
