Trying to figure out which motors and escs I want to use. I guess I should wait to order until I figure out which fc comes with the frame.

I think so. I'd just ordered an Alien RR and I'm very excited for that although I have a regular Alien and now the Helix.. I can't buy anything else for a while I need to use my current motors. I have 2 sets of Emax 2205 2300, 1 set of the Rebel 2205 2650 and 1 set of Lumenier 2205 2350. I think I'll use the Rebels on it.

As far as battery efficiency and longevity you will probably sacrifice a little of both with the higher kv motor but the performance and throttle control I feel using them is worth it for me.

Those Rebel motors are so heavy though. I've never used them so they might be really durable. Weight isn't always a bad thing. But personally I would rather run a light 2206 motor instead of a heavy 2205.

I have some ZMX 2206 V3 motors that are about 2.5 grams lighter (29g) than my DYS 2205 2300 kv (31.5). That's 20% more electric motor and less weight.

OK, you did with your pre-order game. I'm totally in! Send it now!

- Do DYS XS 30A 3-6s Lipo BLheli_S (45*16.5*5.8mm) fit onto the 5' frame?
...or maybe LittleBee 30A-S ESC BLHeli_S OPTO?
...ooor maaaybe Emax Lightning 35A BlHeli_S (32.6*18.0*6.5mm)
- Which motors do you recommend? SunnySky Edge Racing R2204 2300KV? Or EMAX red bottoms?
- Recommended LiPos? 1300mAh?
- Which SMA connector for the VTX antenna?
- We can put a GoPro session on the frame, right?

Wouldn't be surprised if those that do the blind order get a lot more than impulserc is saying.
If i hadn't just brought another Alien i would be in.

Call me crazy, but I'm in. ORDER #7235 - My Alien is my best flying 5 inch frame. The only thing I don't like is the weight. This one seems to address that.

I'm scared of batteries on the bottom, because the one frame I do have like that I don't really like... but it's not stiff enough. nor does it carry a GoPro. I have a feeling the Helix will be bottom-slung. I'm sure this quad will be stiff and it will have a well thought-through GoPro mount which should balance the CG horizontally - Which is suspect is the reason I don't like my bottom-slung frame. Too much weight below the motors.

I jumped on it at 8:11 lastnight and was #7090 so there is atleast 145 of us that are equally crazy ??
if you own an alien I don't see where it's even a difficult decision !!!

^^^ I agree with you there. I've tried a good number of frames and the quality of the Impulse frames is much higher. I've purposely bought other frames trying to find something better... but, nope.
