Here is the apex Steele version totally hydrodipped. This frame is insane....It flies so well ! So locked! And the fpv feed is crystal clear: no need Dji ^_^
Fly time is just insane (check out the video : I'm pretty fast and I flew 4 min)

gopro mount from 3Dracerxyz is just amazing !

Hope you enjoy this build

Question:
the ESC says its just for max 5S Betteries but you are using a 6S Lipo. How you do that?

Awesome Build!
Where could I get the file from 3Dracerxyz? It is not on Thingiverse - right?
Thanks very much:)

What are the two caps hooked up to?

Pimpmykwad   Feb 01, 2020

for avoid electronic noise from esc...and have a clear fpv feed

JUSTiFLY_FPV   Feb 03, 2020 

Thank you, I meant what do you have them wired to? I have seen one cap hooked to the lipo pads, but never two. What are they both wired to?
Beautiful build btw!

Pimpmykwad   Feb 03, 2020 

yes...the two caps are wired to the lipo pad.... I used two little caps (more esay to build) and not a big one (50V 1000 uF are HUGE !!!)

what does that apex regulator board do?

Pimpmykwad   Jan 24, 2020

it's a power distributor...and provide a very clean and stable power for fpv feed..... I never ever got such a clean fpv feed..... so clean that I bought others regulator for my other quad!!!

denbleyg   Jan 24, 2020 

Did you only ran your vtx and cam to it? I checked it out and I noticed it has for led's also.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
