Build was made for freestyle, named Barracuda. Uses Skitzo F4 FC with BetaFlight, first installed temporal Racerstar ESC (with black heat shrink), now installed EMAX D-SHOT Bullet Series 30A ESC BLHELI_S (with yellow heat shrink). Replaced props, now it's time for Butter Cutter by Lumenier! Most appropriate batteries for such "hungry" build - Tattu R-Line 1550mah 4s 95c.
Update - installed new heavy props - EMAX T5050BN.
Update 2 - installed new T-Motor F30A 2-6S ESC BLHeli_S, Matek HUBOSD8-SE, capacitor, removed XT60 wires.
