All I can say it this was the best flight and FPV day of my entire time flying (3yrs++) so I'm soooo glad to have captured this footage and my first correct reverse split S through a gap maneuver I have been practicing and crashing trying to perform for quite some time now!!!

Although I need to do some much needed PID tuning for flights with the HERO GoPro attached to the Floss v2 frame, which I have yet to do... I don't know how multirotors can really get any better @ this point?? (maybe with advancements in lipos or other battery source's life, also a bit more strength in frames, but any faster is just about at its limits for me but with all this being said I had to get out on the late night and get my flight fix in. After seeing these spots time & time again, I had to figure out an hour @ which no one would be present and take a moment to burn some packs!!! Please take a sec a watch + subscribe to the channel.
Thanks for the support

I put this build together thinking about the weight of my quad and how the builds feather weight will make it a whole other type of beast... With that being said I never expected to be able to mount a hero GoPro box style cam and still come in lighter then all my previous builds without anything added.... After mounting a big5 GPS I reached 103MPH so I believe without this extra weight and with bi props the top end speed would be even greater!!!
Also I did all of this with 4s... wait for the 5& 6s packs!!

I had to upload this footage, something I've always dreamed of doing since the day I picked up a transmitter & a pair of goggles. It's been a long 3 years & some months change journey with plenty ups and downs, most of which were ups. The #flight hours I've accumulated in the simulator, as we'll as in the field have all been in preparation for moments such as these two in particular. So I've decided to share my dreams, no matter the backlash or hate by any others which I may receive, because I do this for the love of the build, and the Art of the Individual #Freestyle Pilots out there, that feel strongly about, and stand firmly on the belief that they won't allow themselves to be oppressed by a soul & will fly free as a bird!!!
Please take the trip with me on a coast through the City in search of the tallest building to dive….
Welcome to the Rebranding of the #GimbalGuy #Youtube channel; were I take viewers along in my actual FPV journey, in a search to find some of the most unusual, unflown, and breathtaking places a noob has ever been. I also talk a while about where I’ve been, and why I’m back to stay forever; also the turn the hobby took for awhile which led me to other ideas and interest. Then follow along to a little local gem that I try & get some everyday practice in @.
WARNING:
This video contains explicit language and a little controversial footage which maybe a touchy subject for some.

MEET GOLDEN COBRA
Zuul/ Hovership was my never first REAL multirotor, before I got the V1 RaceHound (kit) I owned Hubsan micros, and the 250 Walkera Runner which I wouldn't even call a multirotor, but more of a novelty. So after watching everyone graduate to amazingly fast builds,
& I only had a 285mm Vortex, it was finally time to step it up to the pro level. To a quad that I wouldn't even think of disrespecting by putting a 4s lipo on, and even think twice about putting most 4s lipos on it to fly. After many, many, flights and about 22 builds later I bring you the v2 RaceHound 235mm 6s beast.
35a 4 in 1 Lumenier ESC Board
F4 Lumenier AIO FC
2207 2600kv Golden Cobra Motors
RunCam Micro
Dys 200ma vtx.

DAMN!! All I can say is I been waiting on a build like this!!! 5s will def be my NEW STANDARD!!!!

I always wanted and knew that I would eventually make a build that could come out of any power loop and take a straight line punch out or be falling from about 200 plus feet and stop on a dime from the thrusting power of the set-up.. I never dreamed that this would be a three inch build that could accomplished the flight characteristics I've been searching for. The Gozer by #Hovership has amazed me at every step of the build and flying this craft feels like butter.
The quality of the frames Hovership delivers is also unreal. I bought a Racehound 285mm v1 4s Kit couple yrs back, even after some 25+ hard, high speed, directly into the dirt crashes I have yet to break an arm, plate, or damage anything other then some 3d prints. With this being said I believe the Gore has the same type of durability & this is the reason I have also purchased the Gore Hex frame as well as the new RaceHound 235mm v2.

As a builder, putting a quad together and everything working properly gives a feeling of accomplishment and there is no substitute for someone seeing the quad... and then saying "You built that yourself???" But it then gets even more addictive to the point were you want to see how much you can fit in the smallest dimensions.. the you become addicted to building different millimeter sizes. Currently, I'm a fiend for the 100mm and below builds. For some odd reason, I want to see just how fast I can get one of these tiny builds to go... IDK if I will be satisfied until I break 101mph, but we will surely fine out, and it will be sooner then later, I can guarantee that 4sure as this is a 4s build... LOL

-BUILD-
FRAME: Ascent 94mm V2 by Flex RC
FLIGHT CONTROLLER: Lumenier Micro F4 w/FrSky Rx. 20x20mm
ESCs: Lumenier 12A 4in1 Board 20x20mm
FPV SETUP: Run Cam Micro 2.1 1/3 Lens - Eachine Super Mini vtx03
MOTORS:Eachine 1106 6000kv running 2035 5 blade props (Postal wait for the Emax 1106 7500kv + 2035 Gemfan 4 blade props ) building is so addictive that I couldn't wait for them so I used these old motors.
Please take a moment and check out the EPIC THEATRICAL INTRO & my very first flight I've taken with this awesome micro.

Well after a lot of mishaps and just bad experiences with the Eachine FPV quad I recently ordered.... I felt it only right to treat myself to a micro build that I know will fly right because I built it myself from the frame up... I had to get some good components i.e. Flight controller & ESC combo so the build would be reliable and easily fixable/troubleshooting. I have a frame and some motors which are in postal transit but the Micro Machine/ Lizard Killah couldn't wait so I took the old motors 1106s of the Lizard and put them on this build until the baby red bottoms arrive...
This build should rip.. & give that piece of mind which will allow me to feel comfortable pushing the quad's limits!!!

Had to make another blog on this Eachine Lizard Micro fpv quad.. Well it was all out of wack and just bad from the frame up as far as quality control from the factor but after some tedious work and effort on my part; and just sheer determination... This quad has turned out to be my favorite of all the multirotors that I have build... So I just wanted to settle record straight by saying this thing is definitely amazing, well at least the platform is, what it could be, not what it is out of the box.... Another successful build by #GimbalGUY

May seem like a rant but I have to speak my truths and let people know exactly what to expect as far as what might be delivered when you order this quad... 1st I saw the quad and was amazed at the look at the thought that all this great stuff can come in such a small package well what I received was a BNF ready to fly quad $129.99 that had a bad ESC from the motor being grounded out from the winding being touched by a screw on a 2.5mm frame that should be 3mm (not rocket science). So the 4in1 was bad.. didn't have DShot but that was fixed through an update.. Didn't know if Motor2 was bad from being grounded out so I had to order one of these
$7.89 as well as a 4in1 which I had to wait $31.89 . had to buy a multimeter $25(shoulda already had1&#128514 to figure the issue out.. Gotta buy a soldering iron which mine went bad a while back not banggood's fault on this or the meter. The vtx got so hot just sitting there the rubber band(RUBBERBAND for a camera/vtx hold 😂&#128514popped and cam fell out... shoulda unhooked the cam while in Betaflight. And now the next issue the FC won't arm the motors.. To be totally honest I have never flown the quad and after all the issues I don't believe I ever will, maybe the frame but not with the stock guts and setup, and this is very sad because I can't even review it for my channel. So, I'm def not upset, because I'm not the type of person who gets mad but you will make me whole again and banggood surely fixed everything so...Continue Reading

Had to say I've been having the urge to build, and build a lot... All of the quad builders/designers know that good old feeling and when it hits, well you know how it goes the feeling won't leave until there's that almost close as it can get to perfect build that satisfies that need. I started on some 95mm Micro and now I am moving on up to the more powerful 3inch 150mm summoned by #hovership #gozer which I know will be a blast to build and even more fulfilling to fly after finding out how to fit all components in with that clean/ manufactured look. F20 Tmotors with Tmotor F20A BL heli Dshot600- Smallest build I have completed prior was a 180mm

Wow, this little #micro #fpv camera is just perfect for the little 150MM (really any size quad for that matter) and below quads that I am starting to grow soooo fond of. After the late transition of brushed to brushless micro craze, I feel this is the only was to go FPV wise... This cam is 2.1mm 1/3" so I won't fine a lot of the screen taken up by props in the FOV and with the CCD sensor I won't have the annoying contrast difference when I drop down in altitude from the skies to about 4 inches off the ground or going through a power loop gap that is beneath the auto exposure range.. plus the fact the ccd sensor will reduce a lot of the jello produced by vibrations. The sheer size of this cam is amazing in its own right... Well at least coming from the good ole days of 700tvl cmos fatshark cams with the 2.8mm go pro lens that was definitely clear and in the top 5 of FPV choices of that era. I'm just happy I did little homework a decided on pulling the trigger on this little orange Sight!
