This drone is light weight - under 350 grams, EMAX ESCs will give a lot of power to motors. Chosen new monstrous trust motors for this build - Hobbywing XRotor 2405 2850kv (excellent trust of 1580g on 12 volts with 5040x3 props) and new EMAX T5050 props.
BF 3.1.7 & BlHeli_s 16.65. Will see if Tattu R-Line 1550mah 4s 95c will handle such power...

Doesn't like how F4 FLAME fc works, decided to install new one - Lumenier F4 AIO.

Hi,
I'm building the same frame but with the flame f4
I wanted to know if you found a way attaching the xt60 to the frame, so if the battery gets ejected it won't rip off the pads?

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles,..
