ask question if you have any. Will try to update as I tweak. Smoking fast for a 3", impressed with the quality of the frame.

same motors, props and cell count.. whats the tuning like on those props? did you have to drop every thing right down ( especially the Ds )

I've got infinity 550s 850s and some tattu 650s for my build. that prop and motor combo will bench around 700g per motor so your going to need a battery that can handle 60-80amps constantly. which out of these batterys only the 850 will manage.

have you tried bumping up you TPA id go .05 at time and see if it gets rid of the high throttle issues

I'm running Raceflight and RF1, not sure if there is a corresponding feature to Cleanflight/Betaflight's TPA? Going to the 860mah will cost me 20g - hard to get the best of both worlds i suppose.

ow did you go with the tuning I've got mine dialled in really nice, moved to rotorX 3044t props and i really like the way they fly.. now the tune is good I'm going to give the gemFans another run.. i ended up starting the tune by cutting all the PID values i half other than the yaw P which i took down 30% it totally rips..
battery wise the 850s allow for all the WOT you can handle so thats my goto as the 550s ( while t handles a little better only gets 1.4min of flight time i racer mode..

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..
