Lungo Americano

Trying something different today. 6" 6s HD cruiser. Not necessarily going for looooong range here, just something I can cruise around with at cool spots. So went with the Raggio Lungo frame as it had 6/7" prop flexibility plus some nice 3D printed mounts Larry's already made up.

Build was easy, this thing has plenty of room for everything. Went with separate ESCs to make sure the stack would fit but I think it's do-able with a 4in1 ESC now. Also check out those Demon 2207 1750kv motors. A bit more Kv than I wanted but they're sold by a local and brand new to market so I wanted to support them.

Frame edges are painted in my signature white trim. White paint pen covered with a thin layer of superglue. Protects the edges AND looks awesome.

Let us know how the Demon motors work for you. Greg is a pretty cool guy so I'd like to try some on a future build.

So far so good, smooth and more power than I probably need on a cruiser. I like the big bearings in them, should be reliable although I don't plan on wrecking them into gates.

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..
