Martian 6" Budget Slammed Rebuild

This is a rebuild of my very first 5" quad. Still going with a very budget build, with some simple added bells and whistles (racewire, racelites). I upgraded the old budget motors (racerstar 2205) to the newest budget motors (Samguk 2306 2500kv). I dropped in the cheapo 35A AIO ESC which has worked well for me on my other 5" build so far. I have the 6" arms on this for some prop flexibility and clean air flow. I'll probably fly it on 5"-5.5", but I might experiment a bit with 6" too. Maybe too high KV for 6"? Not sure, will experiment. I also managed to slam the frame down to 20mm which I like quite a lot. Using the new Frsky X-lite with it (normally use Spektrum). I feel like my builds are getting a bit cleaner and more tidy which makes me feel good inside. XD

how did you mount the FC?

cutthenoise   3 days ago 

I used a 3D printed TPU mount that allows you to mount a 20x20 board on a 30x30 stack. I got it from catalyst machineworks.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
