These HGLRC motors are very quiet and very smooth. Combine them with the Avan 3x2.4 or Avan 2.3" props and it becomes a very stealthy park flyer. I choose this particular 3 in 1 camera for its ability to input betaflight osd from the FC. I originally intended flying it on 2s 350mah lipos, but the batteries couldn't handle the amp draw. 450 is much better. Light freestyle leads to 5 min flight time with the battery resting around 7.3v

AUW with 2s 450mah is 74g (45g dry).

my 1103s 7500 draw much more than the 6A/ESC you have with the tower, especially on 3'' triblades. Aren't you concerned?
Did you put a throttle cut?

for low pitch, the Gemfan 3018 are
good and stealthy too ;)

the hglrc 1103's are not notchy kotors at all, so they dont have as much power as some other 1103's. however, this also means they tend to draw less amps. I cut off the top 5% or so since i dont get any more thrust in that range anyways.
i like the 2018's but i really like the avans for some reason. i run them on all my 3" setups.
what 1103's are you using?

i'm using the Amaxinno... Not notchy at all :) but a max current of 8A per motor. So I went for an AIO fc with 10A...
works very nicely! need to try these Avan then :)
thanks!

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
