6s racer

This is my first 6s ultralight racer. Its total weight is 277grams including props and I could bring it down to 270g if I were to replace the motors with the new emax 2206 rsII or even the 2306 ones.

Out of curiosity I've tested it with the hqprop 5.5inch V1S props and a 6s LiIon pack and got a total flight time of ~29minutes while cruising. I was hoping to get over 30minutes with but the weather didn't help. I will repeat the test when the time allows.

It is amazing to see a racing setup fly for half an hour when cruising.

I want to do fpv freestyle with long flight time. which builds are better for iti ocean or 6s racer. And if ı can do fpv freestyle with this build, can i do freestyle when ı will attach gopro on this build

for long flight times you need light setups but also appropriate motors and props. my 6s racer setup is quite light and can carry a session without any issue but a 2207 mottor would be better if you want to carry a gopro often.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
