ARX-R Speed Build

Just another attempt at going fast, I very much enjoyed my recent past build but it was having endless troubles with various components, so it was time to start fresh and do it like I ment it.
Frame is not currently in production but it is the ARX-R from quadstardrones. it comes with the curved arms all straight, and the bend gives them an incredible tension and rigidity.
Really wanted the pod to be turned 45 degrees so that i could fly it as a X config but couldn't find a print file and don't know crap about modeling so for now it will be flown as a plus style. I seriously doubt this will have any change on performance as it will mostly be flying at 75+ degrees of pitch.
Wiring was a pain in the ass because due to the way the stack was spaced, it required the esc to be fliped, which ment the motor wires had to be soldered onto the bottom of the board, very annoying.
Unlike my previous build, this will have current sensing so I will deffenetly be reporting back with some specs and speeds :)
Will start by flying on 5s just to get things tested up and make sure we dont have any crazy problems, then off to 6s we go.

in theory 'plus' configuration has more stability because props get cleaner air.
In 'X' configuration the back motors get dirty air as the front motors create turbulence.

Hi I am super interested! What kind of stability are we talking about? And what quantifies dirty air versus clean air?

kind of stability only pro racers can feel. no big deal for normal pilots, maybe the gopro will feel the difference but the 'plus' config puts a prop in the middle of the footage.
normal pilots can quantify by it by touching motors after flights... motors in the rear will feel warmer then the front ones because they have to work more to compensate for the turbulences.

it's hard to answer your questions, I hope I helped

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..
