So, after a shitload of work with burning flight controllers it is here - Quadstardrones Arx 5r v2 hybrid. First of all - I higly don't recomend Iflight succex mini stack for this built - I've burnt 4 FCs in the row becouse vtx antenna was pushing down the flight controller sitting only on rubber standoffs -kakute f7 mini, having the built in vibroinsulators can be securly mounted on the nylon standoffs guaranting a non problematic usage.

AUW 399g

So, after a short while of testing I can say a few words.
Firstly - vertical arms help with control. I guess it is thanks to the rectification of the air vortex created by the prop. Thanks to this the vector of thrust has less work to do as smaller changes in RPM create more of the vertical force. Once again - it is only my guess.

Unforunatelly, although the controll is much better than in my legit 4h lite the 4 inch had noticably better top speed and acceleration, althought the 5 incher seems to have at least comparable bottom of thrust.

All in all - I am quite happy with this one and can't wait to showing you what this setup can do!

Welcome to the club! We are few. And we are proud. Also, if you clean that build up you'll get ALOT more speed out of it. I've got a 6" that does 130mph on 4S 2450kv. The speed can be had, just takes a little work.

Hello! It so nice to see such a warm welcome. I have to change the ESC and one motor so cleaning up electrical instalation will be done. I'll update the photos.

As for the speed - it is reather caused by the size of and weight of motors in the 5 inch class. To achive higher top speed I would need to use higher motors and those are heavy and in consequence reduce the nimbleness of my quad. Thats why I achived it in a 4 inch quad, where I could use high 1408 motors while keeping low weight (also those motors were a trash as they were ripping the windings during small crashes).

As for the Arx - it is very, very good.

Unforunatelly you'll have to wait for about 2 weeks for the DVR. I also have a short break becouse I'vs smoked an ESC and a motor. Thankfully in 2 days I'll have the new ones (New ESC will be ori32)

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

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..
