Slammed Squirt v2.1 HD 6s - 2205 2300kv - Caddx Vista Polar

After building a few different variations of the Squirt v2 I am surprised to see how far it has evolved. Starting with the original analog Squirt v2 with 1404 motors and full ducts to this newly built slammed HD Squirt with 2205 6s motors. I did not think I would ever use a 6s setup but because of the larger lipos and not being able to use 1860 lithium-ion cells. First, I will need to do some test to see which will be the real winner. Since, I am writing all of this after all my testing, I do not want to say too much yet.

Betaflight Settings:

Thanks to Robert Moss for sharing his Betaflight setting! These PIDs, Rates, and Filters are specifically for Betaflight 4.2.9, on 6s with 2205 2300kv motors. I also noticed that you need have the GoPro mounted on the quad because it will act up without it.

Here are the PIDs

The rates and also notice that the "Rates Type" have been changed to "Actual."

These are the filter settings

Finially, the setting for the ESC. I am using a BLheli_32 ESC, so it will look different if you are using a BLheli_S ESC. I do have BiDirectional DSHOT turned on too.

Looks great! Curious to hear how you like this version compared to your 4S builds. Would you mind sharing your PID tune for the 6S version?

wrong17   7 days ago 

The the main advantage the 4s version has over the 6s is the longer flight times when using 18650 batteries. If you need to have long flight time that is over 10 minutes, then it is only possible with the 4s quad. The 6s quad seems a bit smoother but that also could be the different PIDs and rates that I am using. Sure, I can share the PID tune. I will send you another message when I post it to rotorbuilds.

The PID, Rates, Filters, and ESC screen shots are up. Sorry it too so long.

Thanks so much, very much appreciated! Your build has inspired me to attempt a 6s version.

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..
