The way I see this Toothpick trend is going is 3 inch 4S. So what's better than Superman 1404 4850kV (or any 1404 in the same kv range) on 4S. Check out how it performs

Why do I want to build it this way?

  • Power and speed : it's natural that people want more power on their crafts. Look at the evolution of Toothpick, started as 0804 1S, less than 3-4 months later, Kabab said the better setup is 1103 2S, few months later, he's saying 1206 1303 on 3S is the way. I strongly believe you're gonna change your mind once you run 1404 on 4S. You're not adding a ton more weight, but the power and efficiency of 1404 swinging 3 inch is unmatched. Using 1404 4S on 3 inch has been done for almost 2 years now, it's a well tested setup.
  • Efficiency: it's well documented that Superman 1404 on 4S swinging 3 inch props can get you up to 8 mins on 850mah 4S. It's very efficient, our tests show that 1404 4850kV can get you easily over 3 minutes with 450mah 4S swinging T3x2, that's hardcore ripping too!

How does this hold up? I see that you are using a 12A ESC board and you seem to be pulling around 15-20A average. Can the 12A handle that for sustained flight?

12A is per motor so through the entire system you have 48A. the board holds up just fine.

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..
