I see you chose a high-pitched prop and 30A ESCs to go with the 2650KV motors.

I just ordered the same motors, along with Spedix GS30 30A ESCs. I was planning on using my Kingkong 5045 props on this build (I have so many that Invested in and I don't know what else to do with them except use them up). I've been second guessing my ESC choice thinking i need at least 35A, maybe 40A.

Here's a link to my build: https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10367

Based on the current draw ratings of these motors (40A using a GF5050 prop) what made you go with 30A ESCs?

(I know you mentioned below that they were sent to you to try. But judging by how many quads you've built there's a chance you had something with a high current rating :P )

Hi,

Is there a reason you opted for the 1x4 ESC w/ PDB combo instead of a 4-in-1 directly to the FC?

No. I have tons of emax products that were sent to me to try so I used these esc's. I use them often an they are very reliable and very small.

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..
