On photo №5 second esc from blow has a join between caps (or resistors, i don't know honestly). Just finished my build and notice, I'm having same thing on 1 of 4 esc's. Did u had any issues with this ?

Anyway, nice quad and video!

What can you say about this motor model?

Can you do one of these with the arms in the top position and the electronics under? Would be really cool to see and help me plan mine.

Personaly, i like it better in "normal". It's damn well balance and kind of "buttery", definitely for smooth freestyle.
For freestyle you want to have an even mass distribution on all axes and as close as possible to the center of the X.
Left/right and front/rear balance is quite easy but for top/bottom it's trickier since the middle referal is not the X of your frame, rather your "prop line".
If you build it "reverse", you'll have your prop line at the middle of your battery pack and so, more weight under than above=not good.
This is theory by the way, if you look at Ummagawd's Remix it has the same issue that i just described but seems to work well eitherway.

Midmount is definitley smoother and more flowy in my experience. If you like doing a lot of looping and diving it definitley has an easier time, the top mount even at 10 or 15mm stabilizes itself a little easier so if you like to cruise along the ground a lot it has an easier time doing that. Very locked in. I prefer the CG in a top mount build, and then the Vert Freestyle for a midmount.

Save 7% on the T8SG Plus with the coupon code "Toyho" at Banggood This is a surprising little transmitter. The Jumper T8SG Plus is a compact, multi-protocol radio tailored for FPV pilots. While it's not the cheapest transmitter on the market, it's certainly a huge leap forward in terms of quality and flexibility. The multi-protocol module lets you fly most toy quads as well as hobby-grade FPV..

The Diatone GT-M200 is a racing/freestyle frame that features an aluminum alloy cage and 6mm replaceable arms. The goal of this build was to balance price, features and quality. It features an F4 flight controller which allows an 8khz gyro update and PID loop frequency and the latest filters. Additionally with BLHeli_32 it supports the DSHOT1200 motor protocol and custom startup music. This also..
