6/26/2019: at.www.myrcmart.com they just offer 1103 7800kv with 1mm shaft.

it's fast. it's cruising at about 20%
it might make many 5" freestyle quads flying like a toy :) kidding.
the build is simple.
just make it 50g or lighter. don't add 10g to it because i don't know how it would fly :)

the build:
-- look at the video and where i'm flying. that place if it was you, you want to fly a normal 3" or 5" quad right ?
-- but i don't want a normal 3" or 5" quad. i want some thing small, light and fast enough.

i'm happy to find this. it's small enough so i don't have to worry about killing anyone :)
it has enough power to climb over any tree quickly.
i'm content for now :)
one thing i don't like about the build. those tiny stupid props are so freaking loud :)
and it needs better vtx.

sometimes you'll see weird jerking movements, those are from the battery moving underneath the quad.

pid is ok, it's flyable. still need some tuning.
i suggest buying kingkong 1103 with 1mm shaft. drilling out the mounting holes is very hard :)

betaflight 4.0.3
frame is about 7g.
i used betaflight presets and change things a little. so credits to them.

can you use 100% throttle ? i don't know.
you can use less filters to help with propwash, but do it carefully. check motors temperature.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
