Bannilight build for Sebring 2018. Fairly light weight build and I'm hoping that it will be a good racer.

What size capacitor are you using? (dimmensions and voltage,uf values) That is a perfect place to put it, very nice.

It's a 1000uf 25v. Not sure on the actual dimensions.

The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
