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.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
