Yes I felt I wasn’t building enough so we have moved up to building 2 drones in one evening.

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

i want to delete

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

Ive built 3 quads at the sametime in one evening (all versions of sparkie so the fundemental building was all the same).... however only one flew well and the other two jiggled about the air like drunken jelly fish on coke so they took another week of messin about before they were good too :laugh:
