« on: May 11, 2018, 23:26:48 »

Frame - CMW Massive Droner 2.5 inch
Stack - HGLRC XJB428 wi5h vtx
Motors - hawksky 1107 6500kv
Props - gemfan 2.5x52
Cam -foxeer arrow micro
Rx - frsky XM+
Lipo - tested with 850mah 3s, probably try 650mah, see if flight time is too short

Running butterflight latest rc. 8khz/4khz dshot600
Had to almost stiock pids on p and d term to get it to stop oscillating, but expected that
May put a v antenna or even an axii ufl, depends how I feel

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />i want to delete<br />
Captured footage, will edit and post, very litterally maiden.
First observation - I don’t use 3s so I don’t have any lipos, except I have an old 850mah 3s 25c.
This thing eats it,
Fully charged, 4-5 seconds out the blocks at WOT and I am getting alerts, need better 3s lipos.

Otherwise smooth and agile, a little slower than my 3 inch vandal (jury is out on if that is the lipo) and quicker at changing direction, would be a brilliant indoor racer (don’t mean in the house) but need to sort out lipos to check out outdoor properly
