how was the feeling while flying? it looks a bit unstable in my opinion.
Mine will be here in a week I hope can't wait. What receiver you use the R9m or XM+ ???
Looks great, but isn't 850mAh on the heavy side for a 2 inch? I even don't use anything higher than 3S 750mAh on a 3 inch. In fact, on the Leader 3, which is also 3 inch, I use a 3S 650mAh, and get up to 5 minutes with full acro. I think you will get better performance and longer flights with for instance a Gaoneng 3S 750 or 650mAh, or maybe even a 550mAh. It would bring a massive saving in weight, the Tattu 3S 850mAh 75C is about 85g, the GNB 750 is only 70g, the 650 is 62g, and the 550 is around 56g. So with the latter you would save 30g, which is a big amount on a 2 inch, plus my internal resistance tests shows it has the same values as the Tattu 850mAh 75C, so voltage sag will probably be quite similar, maybe even lower, because you will need a lot less throttle to stay up.
I wish I had been able to source this model for testing, would have loved to try some lighter batteries, and see if indeed flight times remain the same, or might even improve, along with having a more punchy quad due to the better power to weight ratio.
Amazing review and really cool Flight……thumbs up Bill??
Awesome little quad, Bill! Really nice flights! ?
