  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Motor vs prop decision ?
« on: August 03, 2018, 06:21:27 »
As I haven't built a new quad to add to my collection for a while I've decided to build another micro quad but I have a choice of motor kv a choice of frame size which then gives me a choice of prop size  :banghead:
So these are the fixed definates I'm using a 1104 motor and a 3s lipo....... now the choices :-
1. The motor comes either as a 4500 or 7000 kv
2. The frame is either 95 or 113mm wheelbase
3. The 95mm frame will take a 1940 Gemfan hulkie prop whereas the 113mm frame will a hulkie 2040 prop
So what's the best combination I'm thinking the 7000kv motor as I'm only running 3s but smaller frame smaller prop or larger frame larger prop ?
The centre of both frames are the same size by the way so you haven't got more or less space to work cramming the fc,vtx and rx in  ;)

Don’t know if you’re still looking into this but I would take the 7000kv motor. I run the 4000kv 1106 emax on 4s with the gemfan hulkie 2040 or the hq 2 inch prop.

For frame size, that’s up to you but I’m surprised the 95mm version won’t take the 2 inch prop.
