I purchase the M5 stretched x version stripped it down and made it much better. Started with the almighty Aikon AK32 4-in-1 35A 6S BLHeli32 ESC mated to the Helio Spring IMUF FC with T-Motors F40 Pro III's equals a blast in the sky. This 5 incher totally rips hard with propwash that is virturally nonexistent. Barely got the TBS Unify Pro 5G8 HV (SMA) has the third stack in this build. It took some serious modding with both the vtx and capacitor. Paired with the Runcam Eagle this baby has a clear view even at high throttle. The TBS Unify Pro connected to VBAT with the big fat capacitor I can see clearly now. The real beauty with this frame is it's knife-like ablitly to slice through the air. Coupled with the narrow short body and 6mm thick thin arms it has no problem at high speeds with both agility and maneuverabilty. In the end gotta give credit to the high Kv T-Motors as they are serious contenders at any event. Thinking about flying it on 5s for a true adrenaline rush.

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..
