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).

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.
