Piranha - dragster drone for 6s batteries... Frame - ReadyEdi RE228 Beast-SX V2 (compact, strong and cool looking frame). EFAW 2407R 2800kv motors are great choice. ESCs - T-Motor F30a 2-6s should be enough for this motors. RunCam Eagle2 have wrong mounting places for this frame, had to adapt it. Matek FCHUB-VTX - save some space and weight in this build. Later (when Matek will release new F7 fc) planning to replace F405-OSD with F722-STD.
Overall - 373 grams - very good weight for 6s drone.
Changed FC, installed Mateksys F722, also swapped escs on T-Motor F35a 3-6s BLHeli_32 Dshot1200, installed new led inside drone body.
Next step - tune this monster....

How has the pdb/ flight controller power system holding up with the 32k gyro?

I'm using BF 3.2.4 so far, it's not optimized for 32/32 settings! 32/32 algorithms and filters are in beta versions of BF 3.3

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
