I'm trying to find the best solution for long-range adventures. Long flight time and smooth flight with no vibrations. This build is based on the Rotorama Samurai V2 frame. It has custom arms for 6" props. The low weight is the way how to achieve long flight time and the 6" propellers produce significantly less vibrations than the 7". The drone without the battery weighs of 297 grams. There are quite large motors. After some testing, I might replace them with 2205 or even 2204 in order to save a few grams.
