7" Source One Long Range

I was so annoyed by all the issues my long range wing had that I wanted to build a quad.
This is my first build running EmuFlight. Even with that big battery it flies decently.

600g AUW (with props and gopro)
775g 4S4P 18650 10.4Ah
-> 1375g takeoff weight

~25min flight time (I flew for 13 minutes and only 55% of the capacity was used, it was pretty cold outside and I did many punch-outs and high throttle maneuvers)

That pack seems crazy, even to me - do you think there would be any utility in a lower weight (4S2P, 4S3P) setup for the same general idea?
I'd want to run a 4S1P pack up top, and 4S2P bottom mounted, and see what that could do, but that's new territory for me.

That pack is a beast! What cell are you using? I'm loving the benefits of Li-Ion so much that I'm trying to work on some smaller quads as well. If only there were high drain 18350 I could have a proper 2" Li-Ion build. Love the build as well!

I'm using Sony VTC 5 2600mAh.
Take a look at Dave_C FPV on YouTube. He is working on some cool longrange micros

Thank you! I started to plan and improve the component list almost half a year ago.

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success.
