Stupid Floss V6S

V6S is 294g, 2408 2500kv, 6s floss. If you haven't seen it (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/4638), the original Stupid Floss had the Asgard FC. The Asgard had an unfortunate, epic, solder and capacitor exploding, esc burning end. V6S has been upgraded with DYS F4 and DYS 30amp 4-in-1. I don't expect it will last long on 6s, but maybe it will handle 4s better than the original. The DYS combo makes a clean stack with no soldering between the FC and 4-in-1 ESC The only draw back to this setup is the lack of current sensing. The FC supports SBUS (Betaflight 3.1.6 not 3.1.7), and smart audio via the Betaflight OSD.

The 4-in-1 didn't survive the first 6s battery. It was replaced and the current sensor is now functioning. The current is routed through the flight controller and the xt60 has been moved to the rear. Will be flying with 4s.

Hay actually I'm going to do a quick motor swap and I'll go get some 6s footage for you. Even in the middle of night.. lol

Wait that was suppose to be 6s? Cause it was more like 4s.. damn Yeah i just crashed my 6s helix, i would show you what 6s is really like.. you need to tune it cause it shouod be so screaming loud and fast.. just ridixouliusly fast. never runn a 6s rline before.. handles the rmrc 6s no problem. But the 95c rline. No so much.. did fine for first minute or punch out i guess. Now yeah needs new arm, motor, and antenna.. oh well tho.. its all fun and games... but im going to search cause o have to have a 6s run on gopro to post.. youll notice a huge difference in thrust... HUGE difference

Update: dys 30amp 4-in-1 did not survive the first 6s battery! Current sensing capability added with rebuild.

Definitely because of voltage. Cannot handle 6s. Wish I had seen this video sooner.

There isnt a 4 in 1 yet capable of withstanding 6s in my expereince.. ive looked.. might get few flights like dys 4 in 1.. but it wont last.. mine desoldered bunch of chips and xt60.. clean desolder. Just cause its rated 6s dont mean nothing. They never last more then few flights maybe.. or bust on lipo connecting.

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..
