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.

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).
Cheers

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?

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

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

Want to learn how to build an FPV rig? This guide will walk you through your first FPV freestyle build. These parts were hand-picked to balance cost and maximize performance. The TBS Source One is a popular frame for it's low cost, high quality carbon fiber. It's easy to work with and provides more than enough space for your electronics. We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
