Fletch I can see how you have mounted the RX how do you plan on attaching the Lipo before flight so as to reduce the Drag in the Airstream of the Props.

Got mine ready bar the RX as still waiting for a brace of XM's from Banggood if they get here tomorrow then great if not I have a XSR here that I can Press into service?

I remember why I hate messing with Betaflight and cleanflight now

Updated ESCs and got props and directions all checked

The FC was running the latest BF already.  First flight it just wouldn't sit at peace in the sky ... Stick felt like there was a huge deadband in the centre and then it snatched in the direction I asked for

Reflashed and it flew better but the rates were to high for me and an indoor quad.

Second flight and it felt like the battery was dead within 1 minute and it dropped slowly to the ground ... Quick check and battery voltage was fine.

New battery and now one of the motors stutters and the ESC reboots constantly.

I may swap to kiss ESCs yet!
And pray for a 20mm kiss FC

Urgh!

Doug, my RX is direct soldered with just enough wire to allow it to fold over the top of the FC ... A bit of heat shrink and nip down the top plate

The Dys motors come with that horrible enamal coated single strand wire right to the end!!

The battery is light enough to just have it on with Velcro ... And it's impossible to keep it out the air flow!

So ... After my rant earlier about *flight an update!

Found my problem at it is the crappy coated single strand wire that DYS uses - i wasn't getting a good connection on the ESC that was stuttering.

Re did my betaflight flash and set everything up again.

Throttle Cals done - no issues!
All motors tested - Perfect
Changed min command to 995.. And smoke from a motor!!
Motors spun a little on start then some of the magic smoke escaped!  Not all as its still working!

Pulled that battery ... Checked screws, no conflict
Changed min command back to 1000 ... and it appears to be ok now

Just ordered mine this morning ::) Gone for the Racestar 1103 10000kv/7A ESC combo (22g), Pico FC, Bolt 500mAh 2s (x5), XSR RX, 72ch FPV cam/vtx and of course 1935x4 props.

EDIT: Just had a tot-up and the flying weight should be ~100g inc the battery.
