Once you have a racing quad, these drones become pointless.
So what else to do, then use it as decoration and save it for the museum.
This is a Quanum Nova which is the same as a Cheerson CX-20.
I totally rebuild this, with an Ardupilot APM 2.8 and installed telemetry on it.
Flown it twice since then.

It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

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.
