The TBS Discovery frame makes all the difference. It gets the props and arms out of the field of view for fpv, and adds lots of room to mount all the extra gear. Very high quality frame design. Trappy and company did a great job on this.

ok good news and bad news!!!

Had the maiden today but was let down by another DJI motoir failure grrrr

This is the 2nd one now, please please re solder your motor connectors if you are using the DJI motors, they must use fish paste or soy sauce for solder and flux, after a re solder my other quad is over 300 flights without probs, shame I forgot to resolder the Discovery motrs Doh!

Result 4 broken Graup 10 x 5;s and one arm and a squashed clover, but the TBS frames were fine and the gps and naza are fine so happy days, also had a NAKED gp2 on the front which was also fine and got the lot on vid!

Enjoy the carnage!

I put the Naza between the two plates. Very close to the CG marks.

I'm torn. 3S or 4S? I have naza m and they way it dampens the throttle, there's little gain going to 4S, but there is a little gain in vertical. Are you finding that 3S gets longer flight times?

And does 3S or 4S carry a heavier load?

I know it's subjective and depends on a lot of variables. I can give my specs, but I'm speaking in general terms. Anyway, MT2216-11-900kv and Naza M. currently using 9x4.7 apc and have tried 10x4.7 I have some 10x5 flyduino eprops on order
