I see the F80 2200's on sale for $19. People say they're to heavy for a 5" build but I'm having a hard time buying a lower Kv motor which is also lighter for the same or more money. I will be running 6S and figured I can adjust throttle ratio in Betaflight. I then read these are really linear and not to much power on the bottom so Freestyle could have precision. So ... do you think I should get these or find some other motor?

What are you doing for power distribution? Can't imagine that a standard PDB could handle that current. Also, some of the articles that I read said that prototypes burst into flames. What went up? Motor, ESC?

No PDB – We daisy chained the ESCs with copper wire. Pololu was used for regulation.

So the F-80 motors would work on 6S fine?

Congrats guys!
How did you get 10s out of two 6s?

6s was the biggest I could find on rotorbuilds.com – we used a 10S 1300mah R-Line Tattu for our top run.

You don't need to find parts on RB. You can paste a link to any part instead.

I thought it was 2 r-line 5S batteries together?

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..
