Looks like a cool build, wanted to do one on this frame and was wondering where i could get the stl files for the 3d printed parts

would 1700 kv on 6s with azure 5150 be too much?
any other motor recommendation in the same price range?(must be better)

1800kv on 6s too high? Not for me. Please realize this is what I'm running this second and things have been tried and changed and tried again a few times since the photo and build post. NOTHING is set in stone. Flying styles/abilities and track conditions, size, and layouts are a major factor in chosing prop, motor, and lipo choice and the ability to finish a race. I'm not a great "racer" in my opinion but those things always remain an issue.

Heres a similar build on the same props and same kv motors. I wouldnt say it's slow at all.

lol i have a park ripper ( its too fast to actullay race unless your vanover ) and its 2150kv 6s on a skinny armed 480g take off running the gemfan 5043 props and i can tell ya its stupid fast.. way faster than 99% of the community could put around a track

What's the motor to motor distance for the floss 3.0 frame? Looking for the side to side and front to back distances.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
