Stealth 7 GTO

This is a design exercise for me to create a lightweight long range touring rig. Lightweight is quieter and that meant replacing the standard GoPro camera with a Runcam Split 2 saved a lot of weight and still allows for HD footage on covert missions. Employing seven inch props seem to be a good compromise between performance and endurance and lend a cartoonish proportion of pod to prop. The lightest, flimsiest 7 inch frame I could find would have to make do with this concept. I took one of my Stealth canopies that didn't look right on a Proton race quad and fit it up to the Sloss' 7 frame. The canopy fit was almost perfect! A little modification to refine the mounting position, fix the FPV/HD camera angle to 30 degrees and creation of the first ever pierced antenna canopy design to accomodate the FrSky R9 long range telemetry receiver produce a stunning revolutionary addition to the world of long range. Welcome to FPV Touring! See if you are interesting in purchasing a custom canopy for your long range or race quad.

Hey I currently have the same Flight Controller and ESC that you used for this build. This is my first ever drone, and I am stuck at how to connect these two together with powering and communication cables. Could you possible upload a photo of that part of your drone or explain how you wired up the ESC and Flight Controller. Thanks!

Hey can i ask you why you chose to go with the samguk motors? I know they are cheap but there are so many better motors out there now for the price... Im just asking because i had 3 out of 5 show up DOA on my first order of them and when i had those replaced another 3 out of the 5 had rough bearing within 2 weeks of light flying and a few grassy tumbles on landing... have they improved the build qulaity at all on the 1750kv versions?

Thanks for the compliment. I haven't been able to test it out with the sticker because of the weather, but maybe today. Please check out my Youtube: Mile High Multicopters I don't have a video on this quad yet, buy soon!

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
