it's for smaller area than 1105/1204/1303 3s setup and also it has only 2s 6666kv so it's slower.
it's light and floaty.
i like 1202.5/6 with 3" props more than 2.5" props. but i've heard many people like them with 2.5" props.

A setup i might try:
Apex's chart says it's pulling about 4.5a for 2s. so it might work with happymodel crazybeeX 5a 1-2s 200mw built-in RX/VTX board.
but i don't know for sure until i've tried it.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

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..
