How has the pyro32 esc held up?

SethPV   Jun 17, 2019 

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).
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 ^ :)

tehllama   May 24, 2019 

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

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. 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. 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..
