The build is running BF 4.1.2 | Dshot300 4k/4k | RPM filter enabled.

It has GPS recovery and failsafe enabled. I get roughly 8min flight on a 6S 1300mah battery. ( I have larger batterys coming in to push me over that 10min mark ) That flight time was achieved at 40% throttle (roughly 55mph). GPS has recorded top speeds of over 100mph.

Here is the completed build -

You have a knack for building the perfect quad. I would have thought that you had much more invested in this quad considering it's performance. And I love that video tool. I have it saved as a favorite.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. 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..
