The quad is getting 150-170 everytime out and has went 201mph one time 41000 erpm 14Gs 0-100 in .7 secs. Sounds like a lighting bolt crazy fast.

Very clean build. however not even close to fastest A>B. I fly strictly LOS with simial builds but much lighter as I dont need cam/vtv/canopy etc. imagine the speeds I get.

We should line them up zip-zip

Nice rig. I noticed you put 4s motors on a 6s battery. How is the holding up any issues with dsyncs hot motors etc? can you share your beheli32 config. I see a 202mph that is very impressive. I like that phrase "Drag Drone" I'm building one now maybe we could line them up hehe.

Hi Skywalker, Thanks for the flowers. We'll I finally seen the magic smoke, but it wasn't the motors. The battery went first. I crashed it in the sand so I just replaced all the motors with new ones. Then my goggles went out -gurrr. I'm trying to figure out how to launch horizontally with LC enable and get these high speeds over 100mph. Just seems it always goes fastest straight up.
-maybe when the air temp is lower like now I'll get this thing really going. I'll share the config when Its solid. -still testing just swapped the FC out to the lux f7 30x30

I've read that while the frame is pretty strong that the canopy cant take a hit. Whats your exp. with that thus far?

SIDE NOTE: guessing thats why the shark-fin is added?

Well so good so far. The fin was added for stabilazation without the fin @ 150ish she would shake pretty bad. I'm thinking a fin on the bottom will serv it well -duno

Where did you source the antenna fin?

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
