an extremly wrong build, supposed to be a fast agile racer turned to be a cruiser.

as i was building every miniKwad mainly as a 3S capable kwad, i always choose parts which can handle 2-4s lipos. but this build is different, the (older emax MT1806) motors support(ed) up to 6" props but only up to 3s.

UPDATE: as the emax motors were spinning too slowly and weren't capable of handling more than 3s LiPos, i've ordered some new stuff: DYS 2008 2550kV motors. now the so called "purple215" turns into "red215". will call it "the evil red purple215".

Hello, how is your Flysky FS-A8S receiver doing? What range do you get on it, what radio do you have with it?

KM|fpv   Aug 13, 2019 

Hey,
I really don't have any issues with the fs-a8s receiver. I also have done the rssi mod on all my fs-a8s and the fs-x6b.
I have the flysky nirvana nv14, with the opentx image provided by flysky on their website.

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..
