Such a little ripper!!!! Just a little advice these motors have a strange lock ring holding the bell to the stator, and it doesn't quite fit the arm. I had to replace all of the lock rings with smaller ones to get these motors to work. After flying this little guy I'm very impressed!!! If you need help with these motors feel free to ask.

Looks dope. How did you manage to fit the props on? IIRC those motors have some weird 6mm M2 spacing.

Nah you're thinking of the Xing 2005 which are paired with 5" props
EDIT : sorry I thought he use 2203.5... I too want to know now

I had to put the screws through the prop first sit the prop on top of the shaft. i took 1 screw and twisted just enough to get it started. then i had to lift up just a hair on the oposite blade to get the other screw lined up, then just tighten them down. once tighten all the way down they basically lined them selves up, and there was absolutly no effect on flight characteristics.

It seems like any prop change would be a PITA then... not ideal for a freestyle rig. It's a pity because those motors have some potential on 4" props !

Nice rig, did you weight it ? Any idea of the autonomy ?

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..
