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

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.

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. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
