Longrange Cinematic Shredder

My first attempt at building a longrange FPV quad, flew the maiden today was pretty chuffed with it, very stable. The frame is accutally a placeholder, while I'm waiting for the Project399 Super G Plus 7” to arrive (https://www.defiancerc.com/collections/frames/products/project399-super-g-7-frame). I'm hoping this will solve any props in shot issues, currenty only shooting with a Go-Pro session, but would like to upgrade to a Hero 7 Shortly. Most impressed with how quiet the 1600kv motors and Azure props are.

My only concern at the moment is my range using my old Aomway Commanders, it seems alright, has anyone flown any long-ish range with the Aomways?
Also the frames very light, but seems strong and very little arm flex, only nagative is the cab is very tight, not much room to play with.

Any advise on the build very much apprecated!

Cheers

Would you say these props would still fly nice on 1200kv? I am thinking of building a 7 inch with 2508 1200kv

I would have thought so yes, but I beleve 1200kv would be better suited to 7" twin props, (I maybe wrong!). The reason I chose these 6" tri-blades is they're generally easier to tune, and less susceptible to propwash, etc. Due to these Azures being tri you get a 'simular' thrust output to twin 7" props, (with the same pitch obviously). That's my understsnding anyway, hope that helps!

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..
