Weight at 6.5 oz 185g
1110/1y 6.7 at 5.8oz 165g might be sweet for the orion on 3s.
What is the lightest weight up front?
Looking back I see a 1105/2y with 4.4 maxon at 4.1oz 116g
You couldn't go much lighter could you?
My 2 pennies: The 1112 would be a hoot and not too horrid on weight at 6.5 oz.
A flying buddy is currently doing a 1110/1Y 6.7 on 3S and, yep, it should be sweet. I'll keep you posted.
I used the 1105 w/ 4.4 Maxon, weighs more like 4.7 oz, 13x9 RFM prop, but AUW is only 51 oz with full telemetry. Critical that 2200 3S battery and ESC be side-by-side for CG around 106mm. Lighter possible? I don't think so.
