Still working on the tune for this, but what a build. I have it in the skeleton mode, and running tattu 6S 1400mah which i couldnt find in the list. Super proud of this build though!

Been so long now,lol. I believe I'm on batt. I'd have to tear it open to see.

Did you use ecalc at all for this? If so could you post a screenshot of the settings? I'm trying to recreate it, but the flight times are always low. Wondering if that's just ecalcs formula or if I'm putting in settings wrong. Whats the weight of your rig? Sweet setup btw

no ecalc. just built from what i know. maybe cause im overproped a little, could be why such long flight times. although im just cruising around to get this.

if i had my time back i would have either went 5S on this, or tried to find a little lower kv motor.  its just a tad overproped for 6". causes a little jello. but was getting 8-10 min with a calm Cruise. i'm running 5" on it now,and still managed to do a 2 km run. much better with 5", but can do 6".

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..
