Xing 2306 2450kv added. Flew two packs on it this morning. Was nice. One arm is cracked unfortunately and no spares for sale anymore... :/

I also got to test out the new FOXEER v3 stubby lollipop antenna. They were wonderful compared to my old beat up pagoda. I was a bit worried the battery might interfere w the stubby but it was really good. I had an aomway 4 leaf and a patch on my aomway goggles. The reception was very good even when I flew behind myself w light trees in between. Definately good value so far. Not sure how long they might last though.

stubby does seem to black out if i get in the wrong orientation... upside down nose pointed towards me gave me a blackout twice so far... :/

Great buy.
0603 motors are sooo much better than my previous brushed setup for sure.
after lots of youtube research and consulting with some local whoop racers, i decided to upgrade the motors prior to getting into batteries.
went with Happy Model 0802 19000kv. When i did the swap, i also swapped my frame and replaced the camera mount with a small 3d print bit, which left my flyer weighing around .25g LESS than stock (dry, the scale was tippin a bit)!
Flight time was also increased, due to less amp draw of the 0802's...!

For props im using eachine 010 stock props reamed out to 1mm.

Ive come across the notion that using a solid pin jst connector will also help reduce inefficiency, i placed an order to try out some OG solid pins aswell, altho so far that mod has not been performed.

Batteries so far: on hand i have some tattu 220's, some eachine 250's, some racedayquads 250's and now some GNB 300's (got the 300s after the motor swap). the eachine 250s perform better than my racedayquad 250s, and the 300's give me about 30sec more than the stock eachine 250's. Next im gonna try the GNB 260's...

Hero Hypersmoothing (2 min 37 sec)


I tried out Hypersmooth for the first time the other day.


Also i was having an issue with my TBS unify race locking me into pit mode when id powerup my quad. I had set the vtx into race mode via the betaflight osd which at the time i didnt realize puts you into pit mode when i power on... After lots of resetting the damn thing, i finally figured out i had to unock the vtx via the button push method, once it was unlocked, then i was able to reset the vtx via the osd into 'free' mode... now it powers up 'normally' for me again. im generally a set it and forget it pilot... :/
