This is almost an identical remake of a quad I droped in the ocean: https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10783

The frame is the one recovered from the bottom of the Ocean.

This is my main long range setup which I fly using custom made Lion packs. See the above build for more details.

Technical note: The Matek722 has no onboard 5V regulator. I am using an external UBEC to power the FC, VTX, Camera, RX and GPS. I am using an LC filter on the input power line of the VTX. All components are listed below.

Ideally I should have used two separate UBECs, one for the FC+RX+GPS and another for camera + VTX.

Excellent results with this quad and beautiful build.
What kind of range( thinking of battery,motor,prop, throttle position, speed) are you getting? Do you like the 2306? have you tried others with this kv? I just bought some motors to move fro 5s LR setups to 6s and would very much appreciate some ideas. Thanks!

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...

The Flysky Nirvana is a very cool radio. It has two enlongated grips, a color touchscreen, module support, rear switches, an internal charger, and a retractable antenna.
