I've changed several parts of the Black Shark to allow for 720p onboard recording and longer range. I modded the Cyclops with a lens from a Wolfwhoop AIO, but I'm still looking for the best M7 out there. Flies 5 minutes of fun on 450 Tattu, and Goes just over a mile and back. :)

How the heck did you fly fpv with the turbowing cyclops? With the latency on that thing I'd be better off flying los from a mile away lol

Honestly I see the framerate as more of an issue than latency with it. Just takes some getting used to. After a while you don't even notice it. Then you go fly something with a normal fpv cam and it feels like 120fps gaming :D

What's the weight and flight time?

45g dry, 67g all up. Odd that CNHL says those packs are 27g. I replaced the connector and mine are 21-22g. I can't imagine I took 5 grams off each pack, but my scale weighs a nickel within 0.1g

yeah i am planning on building a baby shark since it seems the electronics will be more protected. i was just trying to uage how mine would compare to yours since i am using a few of the same parts. Its good to know you can still get plenty of flight time with these lightweight micro quads.

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
