I picked up a set of these the day they were released and as soon as I installed them on my racer I immediately fell in love with them. Very nice construction, smooth bearings and a lot of power. I’d say their similar to most 2206 motors, speed comparison to my hawk 5 I’d say the top end is about the same 100-110mph but they get there much quicker possibly due to higher kv than the ls2206 2300. I put them on a track and tho I’m not a pro I definitely felt faster around the track than I did on the hawk5. Wound up 4th place at the race that weekend with the setup. But also on same thought I did get 1st the weekend before but also had a lot of errors this weekend due to some of the obstacles on the course that I haven’t done before but still the Win5 felt awesome.

The setup:
XHover Win5 frame
FlightOne Revolt v3 - Sim Mode engaged!
FlightOne Bolt v2
Hyperlite 2205.5 2522kv motors
HQ 5.1x4.6x3 props
ImmersionRC Tramp HV VTX
Runcam Mini Swift 2.5mm lens

PiroFlip Hyperlite 2205.5 2522kv Maiden Test Flight Xhover Win 5 frame (2 min 18 sec)

The weekend before 1st place race. Same quad but had the cheepass 2205 2300’s on.

I've been testing props on the Hawk 5 vids from each prop coming soon.

First up: HQ 5.1x4.6x3, absolutely love these props on the Hawk 5. No tuning needed they felt great, even better than stock and so far the best prop I've tried on this rig. With other props I always kept going back to the stock Avan Flows but now I'm sticking with this one.

Finally got my Hawk in the air and all I have to say about her is.... WOW. She is fast, she is smooth. My absolute favorite kwad to date. I only consider myself as an intermediate pilot as I've only been flying Fpv for about 9 months now but the Hawkbis my most powerful quad right now. I know a 2206 isn't super powerful but it's at least twice as powerful as the racerstar 2205's. I had to put the cam angle at 45 deg just to keep the hawk from jumping up in the air on a throttle punch, and boy is she punchy. It's going to take me a while to get used to her but I love it. More to come....

Batteries up, props down!

Finally got a GoPro Hero5 Session and have been playing with the iPhone apps lately. Just need to make some longer clips now. I've mainly been posting clips on my instagram
Here's a short 1 min clip I just posted on my YouTube, you can also see I'm flying a lot better than I was 7-8 months ago. Still using the 210 budget quad but in the process of building a floss 2 and a new freestyle rig using premium parts. Pics and vids to come on that one.

Latest build im working on.
Frame - GepRC Sparrow
FC/esc - HGLRC XJB F428 - TX20
Camera - HGLRC Elf cam
Motors - EMax 1306 3300kv
Props - are on the way - geprc sparrow props 3042, as well as gemfan flash 3052 and some lumineer and rotorX props on the way as well.

All parts came from during thier Black Friday sale. Super quick shipping ord red Friday and received Monday. But just now getting to start building. I live this kit so far it's super simple to build but the solder points are small. I'm not the greatest solderer but it's going smoothly. More to come!

Edit: for some reason I can't upload pics. But I will as soon as I can.

Edit 12/28/17: FINALLY!!!! Had the day off and it's cold and rainy outside. Got her 95% done!!!! All I need to do now is pray it doesn't blow up when I plug her in, and update betaflight from 3.1.5 to the newest version and update my escs then time to maiden wooo! Hopefully I'll have some type of vid to post when I finally get her in the air. Probably just a los vid for now(no dvr at the moment but I do have a runcam that may get slapped on top)...Continue Reading

My piggy tail came in the other day, got it installed and works great. Only issue now is my camera (eachine 1000tvl) it white out in the sun. Ugh.

Went out yesterday for a relaxing freestyle flight. All was well till I clipped a tree and my vtx03 antenna got ripped out.

First Pack and Last Pack (2 min 46 sec)

Oh well ordered a pigtail to rp-sma adapter so I can hook my aomway ant to it. Hopefully will get better reception around 200 meters and behind trees.
