This is my (SethPV, The RCAddict) 2019 race build featuring my new frame the neXus :)

It's a 6s 5.2 inch build using premium parts that are top of the line and produce an extremely clean build.

How has the pyro32 esc held up?

I haven't killed one yet.

Hi I value your input on props I live in a remote area in oz freight takes for eva.
I fly dal 5046 on just about everything can you recomend a alternative allrounder to try cause even getting samples takes weeks.
Hard ask i know without seeing my rigs (some are on here too).

I'm not Seth, but as somebody who adores those T5046C props and still uses them as my go-to race prop, the Gemfan 51499 and 51466 are both pretty excellent - the 51499 are obviously a bit quicker and amp hungry, the 51466 are a touch smoother and use less amps (until you're doing silly things like running 2250KV on 6S). Those are my recommendation.

I agree with tehllama ^ :)

Heh, thanks. I've found that the 51466 does at least bend perpendicular to the hub, which means I've been able to limp that home really reliably, just at reduced speed. I end up using those for qualifying, so it works.
51499 is still probably the all-around choice, if not the V2 Cyclones (just for durability - I also like how linear the throttle response is with 2208 motors, the mushier bottom range of the throttle means it's just one continuous line of thrust on offer to my feel).
Good thing to hear that the 5147 is pretty much in the same range, with most of the upsides of the 51466 and making any improvement on durability. I guess I'm ridiculous that I'll wait on those props until I can get them in Purple (and also need to burn off my 35 sets of V2 Cyclones in purple)

At first I was, "How did you get Seth's new racing frame so fast?" But then, I realize that it's you Seth!! :D :D

no heatshrink on the race wire?

SethPV   May 13, 2019 

No sir, just double sided tape under it, never had any issues.

tehllama   May 20, 2019 

Not needed - the heatshrink is great if you want to run it on bottom, but on top of an arm, VHB will get it done.
I'm paranoid, and still run the heat shrink, VHB, then electrical tape over the solder joints

Looks clean. Nice build!

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..
