I see the F80 2200's on sale for $19. People say they're to heavy for a 5" build but I'm having a hard time buying a lower Kv motor which is also lighter for the same or more money. I will be running 6S and figured I can adjust throttle ratio in Betaflight. I then read these are really linear and not to much power on the bottom so Freestyle could have precision. So ... do you think I should get these or find some other motor?

What are you doing for power distribution? Can't imagine that a standard PDB could handle that current. Also, some of the articles that I read said that prototypes burst into flames. What went up? Motor, ESC?

No PDB – We daisy chained the ESCs with copper wire. Pololu was used for regulation.

So the F-80 motors would work on 6S fine?

Congrats guys!
How did you get 10s out of two 6s?

6s was the biggest I could find on rotorbuilds.com – we used a 10S 1300mah R-Line Tattu for our top run.

You don't need to find parts on RB. You can paste a link to any part instead.

I thought it was 2 r-line 5S batteries together?

what was the video recored with? cant see anywhere to mount a gopro and would have thought it would slow it down a lot carrying a camera

We used a gopro for video – this is a different mount.

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..
