What do you think of those Hawksky Motors? Are they high quality? Thinking about picking some up.

The second batch seem to be good - the first batch had a quality issue which they made good on

Very nice. What's the weight this?

About 320g w/o battery

What kind of flight time do you get on this?

It depends on how aggressive I am with the throttle and which props I'm using. If I'm flying very aggressively, 3 minutes on 1500mah 4s with the 6045x3, and maybe 4 minutes with 6040x2

But, I've flown/cruised upwards of 5-6 minutes on 4s 1500mah with 6040x2 and 6-8 minutes on 4s 2200mah with the 6045x3.

I think 5s 1800 would be the sweet spot. This baby comes alive on 5s

Oh damn, I thought you were asking about my Sköll build. Honestly, the 6" Æther is dead right now and needs to be rebuilt. I ran her hard for two weekends at the races - I never really did any long range / extended flights.

I'm guessing because of the stupid light weight, and 6"... you'd expect the flight times I posted above, plus a minute or two.

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..
