Racer X Speed Racer TWIG build. Running BF4.1 with RPM Filtering. Flashed J-esc firmware. BetaFPV AIO supports J-esc...
Also, to avoid confusion if you are looking at my wiring as a reference, I am running F-Port on the R-XSR.

Fly's great. Very efficient and FAST.

Cheers!

update: Switched to HQ 3x2.5x3 from the 3x3x3 props. Slightly less current draw, lighter. Improved performance and better prop wash handling.

Nice build. The third picture helped me wiring one of R-XSR that's acting up, I couldn't wiring it on the SBUS pad, but uninverted + TX2 worked (sorta, still no telemetry)

Can i angle limit this drone?

If you like. You can angle limit ANY quad running betaflight (Assuming you have the accelerometer enabled). But whats the fun it that!?!

I have experience to fly. but it's been awhile since i've ever flown a FPV drone, so i would need to angle limit for a little before i rip the boom off my drone like i did the last time.

hows the performance of these motors? i saw the test numbers tested at 98 C on just 2S. Do they not get hot on 3S?

So far so good on 3S. I've flown it pretty hard outside and have not noticed the motors coming in more than luke warm.

LUV YOU JIMMY!

And yea, before anyone comments, I intentionally put only one screw in each prop initially to create an imbalance in order to test the rpm filtering.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

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..
