My latest Quad build is a 2s 2.5” Nano Quad ‘The Golden Snitch’

Basically a flying Naked Caddx Vista

I’ve been testing different motor options over the last few days and have one more test to try before I show you pictures and give you the details of this collaboration build

We’ve had high winds for the last few days, not ideal for testing a tiny quad like this

His is very nice. How long is the flight time?

You can see what the flight time is fast cruising in this Video :- https://www.instagram.com/p/CFKLo0aHcrA/

Looks good, maybe a little more tuning and rpm filtering is enabled?

This is the stock BF 4.2 Tune, and I've been having so much fun with it that for once I haven't even touched the tune ;-)

Nice build. I just tried same props on my 2s quad with 7500kv motors and noticed these are very efficient with tons of thrust low to mid-throttle, but at high throttle it doesn't see to provide thrust given high current draw. What kind of hover current do you get and max current? My 128g AUW 2s650 with 1104 7500KV motors draws 4.2A in hover and max 19A (but I limit throttle endpoint to 80%).

I'm averaging 5 / 5.5 amps over a 4 minute Hard Rip ;-) I'll check the Hover and Max Amps and get back to you.

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
