Form and function meet in the middle with these racers. Why 5s? Because i still have a slew of 4s batteries and want to fly them. this motor prop combo allows me to switch between the two and run the same PiDs with more efficiency than those high Kv rigs . The new low kv 6s craze is great, but try practicing with that rig on 4s! it will barely hover!!

So for practice, depending on the track i can get my two minutes no poblem on 1300-1500 4s and when im ready to rip for real i can bump to 5s with no changes. These motors and the 5.5 props over a low end thrust that makes freestyle a blast as well

The paracord is just for looks although it does further protect the motor wires. It was tied using a cobra style knot. There are racewires underneath for when i have to swap a motor

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
