3/20/18 - I've built some 6mm motor whoops before but was unimpressed with their speed, recovery, and control. A few friends recommended a higher speed motor as the key so I went with some 19,600kv motors. Going to use tri props. This build is the Last Chance for the 6mm class.

04/02/18 - I built this quad over the weekend and still have tri-props on the build. I did buy some quad blades and cut them down to biblades. The Wolfwhoop cam is displaying OSD nicely and sits tight in the clear Kados pod.

04/09/18 - Something on this build began to smoke after a flight. I can't seem to trace the issue but it will not arm if the camera is installed but it gives picture and OSD. If the camera is removed the quad takes off fine. I may try to bypass the 5v reg.

01/22/19 I forgot I flashed Butterflight on this one. Just remembered. Flies great!

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
