Attempt number 2 at a one mile speed focused quad :)
changed to individual escs mounted vertically to get less wind resistance. with a little bit of electrical tape the arms+escs make a very aerodynamic shape so I think it will be very smooth through the air.
Same canopy as before but with a pdb instead of the 4in1. unfortunately with the escs I have there will be no current sensing.... but im more worried about voltage in this flight.
I ordered some 5s 1300 pacls that I will run in parallel to get a high capacity without risking the 6s high voltage and if things go well I might give 6s another go, I just want to have atleast one solid flight before it goes up in flames again like the first setup. :)
Will update when I get a crack at a few different props to see which ones are the fastest.
UPDATE: Took it out with 5s 1300 packs and topped out at 105 (99mph) wide open with the 5152-2 but wasn't killing the pack so with 2 in parallel I think I might be able to keep it pedal to the metal for most of the run (DVR coming soon).
I dont have the confidence yet to run it on 6s....so that will have to wait, I will be trying out the HQ 5x5x2 to see if they are quicker but otherwise it will be a few more test and then go time!

smooth out the canopy? I'd do it for you, just slide me the STL.

If you really feel like going all out, a real sma mount at maybe 45° sticking out the back would be legendary!!!

Freaken legendary build!! Im excited for an update!! It would be pretty awesome if you could record the DVR.

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..

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. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
