These HGLRC motors are very quiet and very smooth. Combine them with the Avan 3x2.4 or Avan 2.3" props and it becomes a very stealthy park flyer. I choose this particular 3 in 1 camera for its ability to input betaflight osd from the FC. I originally intended flying it on 2s 350mah lipos, but the batteries couldn't handle the amp draw. 450 is much better. Light freestyle leads to 5 min flight time with the battery resting around 7.3v

AUW with 2s 450mah is 74g (45g dry).

my 1103s 7500 draw much more than the 6A/ESC you have with the tower, especially on 3'' triblades. Aren't you concerned?
Did you put a throttle cut?

for low pitch, the Gemfan 3018 are
good and stealthy too ;)

the hglrc 1103's are not notchy kotors at all, so they dont have as much power as some other 1103's. however, this also means they tend to draw less amps. I cut off the top 5% or so since i dont get any more thrust in that range anyways.
i like the 2018's but i really like the avans for some reason. i run them on all my 3" setups.
what 1103's are you using?

i'm using the Amaxinno... Not notchy at all :) but a max current of 8A per motor. So I went for an AIO fc with 10A...
works very nicely! need to try these Avan then :)
thanks!

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..
