I won a set of T-motor F40III 2750kv 'Lets Champion' special edition motors, and picked up an X-hover Win5 from a friend who got it on a quad box boost. I literally tore the insides out of my other Racer X build because I wanted to see how these fly. so FC/VTX/Receiver combo just got hot swapped. I'll add details below.

Edit 1: I've had the maiden flights + 4 batteries of a pid tune session, and in my opinion this prop/motor combo does work. it feels aaaaalmost as tight in corners as triblade cyclones but you really have to rev the throttle up a ton to keep a tight corner. not a super difficult motor to tune, but according to miniquadtestbench they also test closer to a true 2600. the emax 2750kv were a bitch to tune by comparison. having flown and tuned both I would take these any day. as an added bonus, these motors stay veeeery cool. I would call them luke warm after a full pack with a good pid tune. even when they had bad oscillations they were cool to the touch. All in all a solid motor.

I'm not sure this prop combo is for me. Might try a slightly lower pitch. it's fast enough staying below 80% throttle the entire flight.


final note: these motors are not soft mounted, but FC is. it was impossible to tune the emax without soft mounting motors.

edit: testing micro cam on here with TPU mounts, also added TPU gopro mount. surprisingly ESC did not burst into flames with this setup.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
