My first 6" build, intent was for efficiency and longer flight times (and eventually long range). so far, if I can convince myself not to do acro, I can fly 7 minutes on 1350mah batteries. 555gm AUW with gopro hero 4 session.

The only things I plan on doing with this build are

  • adding a long range recevier, either L9R or dragonlink setup
  • better ESC. I think I installed 12 amp instead of 20 amp. they are fine for how I fly but I like to overkill and forget about it as a point of failure.
