if you already have tried them, leave a comment and tell how you like or don't like. so i know how others feel.
so, just put them on any motors and give them a try. who knows, you might like them.

the amp draw is too much for 3s 1103 7500kv. i might try 3s 1103 5000kv or slightly bigger motors.

my testing setup:
Amax 1103 7500kv, 2s/3s
and all the usual things people put on their toothpicks.
weight: 46g

my pid is not good. you can tune it better.
2s pid: betaflight default 4.1
3s pid: I - default, P - about 25, D_min - about 14

cutting props ( in the picture ):
you would need to cut 2 times to bring them down to 2.5"
drill a small hole, stick a toothpick in, put props on, and use foam tape to hole nail clipper in place.
take it slow, be patience, and be consistent.

the amp draw is way too high. i'm thinking of lower kv or slightly bigger motors like 1202.5 or 1203.

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..
