I saw your other build of this. Looks awesome, the mounting you've used looks super clean and tight!
You had quoted 5min on the previous build, how's the 2x1300mah 4s for flight times? I'm trying to decide between 6 or 7 inch cruiser.

Unfortunately, I couldn't have proper flight with 4S2P setup yet. I expect 7-10 min cruising.
Because this guy is way too heavy.. auw over 700 is no joke lol I really like this but not a great cruiser.
I recommend forget alien and get a light 6inch 6s setup. That motor should be able to cruise over 10min with that.

I really hope you had a defective ESC, because I'm putting together a 6s 6" with those motors... Was hoping to use 35A ESCs I have laying around, and just cap them all @ 470uF, plus a 1000uF on the power lead. What size capacitors did you use?

Maybe inadequate air flow since the motors are designed to cruise @~60 mph?

Aaaah sorry to hear, but that's a relief for me! When I see the word "fried" I tend to assume heat or current as the sources of the component failure. I can't wait until mine get here. Silverdrone shipping speed is somewhere between glacial and turtles in peanut butter.

Yeah you will be pleased. Really liked the prop-holding teeth as well, that thing really bites.
I think shaft bent at the crash and that giant esc threw massive current to spin it right before disarm.
