I cheaped out on esc's and run currently on oneshot 125, but she's still a beast.
Edit: running multishot with active dampening, now this thing riiiiiips. also upgraded the build to Steele motors.

crappy PDB with no voltage step down (FC runs on VBAT) so the power filter is a must for the VTX to keep noise out of the video feed.. I bought 4 filters for less thatn $10 on ebay. have it in all of my 5" builds currently.

in my opinion the 2600kv motors are too fast for acro, even with 5x4x3 props. I would stick with 2300. Going to practice racing with this setup, but I currently fly 25deg camera tilt and it's not enough for this rig. been practicing closer to 40 deg. punchouts in a straight line easily hit 70mph. PID tune on these motors is a PITA.

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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..
