New AMAXinno motors in size 2207.5 with 2500kv are great, lightweight XBEE-SR 220mm frame, powerful T-Motor F55A Pro esc, reliable Matek F722-Mini flight controller - this drone is a beast! All components was chosen to handle up to 6s batteries without any issues, so to be sure that 6s batteries will do no harm decided to install bigger additional 50v 2200muf capacitor. Total weight with props is about 330 grams, so power to weight ratio is really mad!

Holly crap batman! 2500kv motors on 6s? Thats like 63,000 rpm theoreticly and at 330 grams it's got to a beast. I want to see a speed run.

I will add a link to flight video after testing this drone. Big question is to find propellers that won’t blow up in the air during a flight at a full speed...

Low pitch bi-blades? Thinking about it, I don't even know what i'd run. A lot of low pitch props are thin and would flatten out at that speed. I have a friend that built a Catalyst Merica running 2400kv 6s using a bolt v2, the bolt burned up on the third run.
He started out full throttle, it was fun to watch while it lasted but i'd start about 60% and put my amp draw right in the middle of my osd. Good luck, can't wait for the flight video.

Love the look of this thing, especially the stubby antenna for the VTX and how you've mounted it :D

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..
