I'm also looking to build my first 7" and was thinking about the same motors. I was recommended to take 1200kv (6S) or 1500kv (for 6S and 4S). I see your build has the 1750kv motors, why did you choose these? And what do you think of lower KV motors?

i wouldnt want to fly 4s on 1500kv its slow enough on 1750. I just use a throttle cut of 20% on 6s, flies like a dream. I know people running 2200kv 6s 7" altho that is a bit extreme.

Do you use it for cruising or more freestyle?

LaminairFPV   Aug 14, 2019 

A bit of everything, it'll cruise steadily, at 45mph 20A but its nice to be able to rip some freestyle at 70mph when i feel like it.

It's a homemade jobo, one of the rocket scientist guys from midrange mountain surfers facebook group designed it and someone else did a video on how to make it if you want to check it out https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXtO2DcYocuJ88k46LrAlI0kvBilryplX.

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..
