Awesome build! Super clean and what a great flight, so smooth! Ended up here trying to find reviews on the ESC you used, I think im sold, though mines for a flightone build, hopefully its not too noisy!

Do you mind showing/sharing how you made your pigtail so neatly tucked at the back. I'm waiting for mine to get to me ang I'll be building mine soon and I really love just how clean it looks. Plus, can you share where you got the 3d printed parts that you used. Thanks in advance.

Can you please share the final build weight?

Pretty cool build!

Looking at other builds of yours, it seems you might have experience with RunCam Micro Eagle. The latter is my primary FPV camera and I'd say it is superior to many other products, but having the ability to record in HD on a micro is very nice. Some of my mates fly with the first version of Split, and should say the FPV feed is plain horrible. Very choppy with poor dynamic range and noticeable feeling of being "disconnected" from the quad. So, if you used Micro Eagle, how does Split 2 do in comparison?

Oh I just love that little gecko frame! Really nice build and seems to fly well! 😊👍

What flight times do you get using these motors? How do you feel about them now that you have been using them? Nice build man!

between 3:30 and 4:00 on an 850 4s. First time using these motors, I've always used BH 1407 before. These are smoother and have power, but the response curve feels weird, especially in the bottom half of the throttle. Just need to get used to it I guess.

Want to learn how to build an FPV rig? This guide will walk you through your first FPV freestyle build. These parts were hand-picked to balance cost and maximize performance. The TBS Source One is a popular frame for it's low cost, high quality carbon fiber. It's easy to work with and provides more than enough space for your electronics. We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
