Cool super heroes need a super cool ride, right?

I built this Emodia Racer-X proto frame with a Dalrc 50A Rocket ESC and wanted to leave it on top of the stack to show the cool looks.
The Brotherhobby Speed Shield 1750kv motors look so awesome, that I wanted to add some extra spice to soup with a exhaust header looking wiring.

What you think, hit or miss?

This quad looks surely different, but in the end there is nothing unusual in the build materials, only some fabric tape.

I made all the screws to this build from stainless steel M3 screws and heat treated them to titanium like color.
Btw, Karhu is a Finnish beer brand (logo in the cap). XD

A final version of this frame is now out, go get yours! More info

Man, the "exaust piping" alone of your build make it worth the creativity oscar of rotorbuilds haha
Very nice!

Love the header wrap, 👌

How do you like those motors, I want to do a race build and was wondering what you think about them.

I only can tell my experience about 6S and 1750kv version. They feel almost identical to R6 2207 1750kv motors. Really smooth. I have only had few lipos trough it, since it has been bad weather lately. But with R6 motors I have had some more stick time. At first I thought they have a lack of power, but lap timer told otherwise. I had same or better lap times compared to my other race quad with iFlight T2207 1750kv motors. Definitely a great buy!

thanks for the feedback, I think I'll go for it, I'm buying the racedayquads version, so it's a 2450kv version but I'll be running it on a high volt 4s or maybe even a 5s.

You won't be disappointed!

its a great hit, a project could be to find some small copper pipes maybe 3mm in diameter that are bendable and use those halfway up the fabric tape so you get the blend of the metal and the fabric
(might be a little heavier tho)

Funny! I was considering the same! :D Nice to hear a good feedback!
I decided to stay in fabric tape, because i need flexible cables to be able to access the FC usb, that is now under the "header". Also to keep the weight down. ;)

Hmmm... Maybe I could put some stiff heat shrink to cables to get the rigid form and paint the heat shrink tubes to copper color... Let's see! XD

yeah thats true but your suggestion sounds like a good idea

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..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
