do/did you tattu 1050 45c 4s lipos get hot with those q4040 dalprops with your 1806 2300kv emax? i tried those props on my dys 1806 2300kv's but they drain the battery too fast and come down REALLY warm. the T4045 and TJ4045 seem to be good and less amp draw for my tattu 1050 45c 4s 's's's.

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..
