This is Jordan's Practice Rig that he uses as a stand-in for his Racer4 on while practicing for DRL.
We had been bugging Jordan to release this publicly for a while and it's finally available!

It's running the usual BrainFPV Radix FC and Hobbywing 60A stack with TBS Crossfire Nano for control link. Video is a TBS Pro32 VTX with Runcam Eagle Micro for that crispy low light CMOS goodness. Motors are BrotherHobby Avenger 2507 1500kv. My first time running them. We'll see how they do between somber 4s and silly 6s.
Props are HQ 7X4X3.

What can I say - This thing is a tank.

thanks for share, nice tank!
why is a tank needed to train for drl, simply because the fly tanky settup like this? or are there benefits in flydynamics about big 2507...
thank you for any explaination

Jordan made this to give him something to bash about while practicing for DRL. The explanation I heard was that this setup mimicked the Racer4 but he could crash it more during his own practice sessions.

I wonder why you have not used Avenger 2510 motors. KV, maybe? Looks like lot of space, so nice and easy to build, right?

I was intending on going with 2510 but really didn't feel like giving Banggood my money. Space-wise tip to tail this is the same size as the SuperG although the practice rig is wider.

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..
