Thanks to Whitenoise for the racewire, Jet for the PID tune and awesome frame design, Wrckit for GPS guidance, Airblade UAV for the awesome and novel travel easy TBS immortal T antenna mount, and RocketCity3D for the quick turnaround on printing all of these parts.

So I have my 7" setup and I'm happy with it. I also absolutely fell in love with the superg+ once I saw it in person. so naturally.. yea, I had to build one.

I decided, as I already have a purpsoe built 7", this would be built out slightly differently. targetting agility,stability, and still some efficiency, I went with 1950kv 6" azure (4S) in comparison to my 1750kv 7" setup. I'm currently running the same 5200mah 4S lipo (425gm) on 6" and 7", but it also opens up the opportunity for running 2200mah 5S if I want lower weight/more pop/acro agility potential. Added bonus is that the props are not in HD view.

Ive solidly decided after finishing both of these builds that i will get a hero 7 black . at some point. I do not know when that point is.

I decided to go bottom mount with lipo as it gives me greater ability to find balance with the large lipo in pitch axis. when I run 2200mah 5S I may test both top and bottom mount arrangements

hi, do u have any clips of the above exact same Super G using the MB equipment in flight giving these long flight times..thx

Minichado   Apr 13, 2019 

I don't actually have any flight videos posted for this rig that show the full flight time, but there is one video of it flying atm.

currently I'm getting ~15-16minutes on 6" 5200 4S, 20 minutes on 7" 5200 4S, and I flew 13 minutes (aggressively) on 6" 2200 5S. Most of the test flights have been at night so I could see the EL wire, but this means the only video worth watching is DVR because the gopro video is just pitch black!

Nice build! What the flight time?

Minichado   Mar 10, 2019 

so far 16:30 on 6" props, and 20 minutes on 7" props, but in both cases I did not push the lipo all the way to empty. so... long enough!

Looks so hot, but please don't put it in the lake.

what leds?

Minichado   Mar 07, 2019 

It is EL wire, unfortunately the source I bought from no longer exists, but you can find 2-3ft strands of EL wire on amazon for around $10!

How did you get the arms to light up like that?! It's so pretty

Minichado   Mar 06, 2019 

It's flexible light up wire called 'EL wire'. You can find it in automotive sections online fairly cheaply. it runs on AC current though so you need a way to get it from DC to AC from a lipo.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
