What kind of flight times do you get with this bad boy? Thinking about a 4" build and can't decide between 650 and 850 mah.

Rickybobby   Jul 28, 2017 

I would go with the 850 mah. The 650mah sags a lot with 1407s. I've actually been running a 1000mah pack and have been getting anywhere from 4-6 minutes but that all depends on flight style.

The color coordination between the props and canopy is great! How hot do your motors come down with those props?

Rickybobby   Jul 15, 2017 

Thanks! The motors seemed to handle these props no problem. I haven't pushed hard on a really hot day to stress test it yet though. I'll be interested to see how they do with the extra weight of a 1050mah battery.

Great! Got any footage?

Rickybobby   Jul 15, 2017 

No :( I'll hit you up when I get some though. I haven't bought a sd card for my fatshark yet haha.

Nice! I wish you had a scale as well. I'm about to rebuild mine and go back to the stock canopy with the Micro Swift.

You guy's keep an eye out on those XJB's. I just had the negative pad lift off while unplugging the battery on my Underpup. If you have a way to zip-tie the leads down, I would do it.

I was trying to think of a way to run it out the back for that reason, but haven't decided how. Good looks!

are 1407 motors the largest you can fit on this frame?

Rickybobby   Jul 14, 2017 

The largest motor this frame fits is ones with 12x12mm mounting holes. I'm not sure if 1407 is the largest in that class.

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,..
