The Beautiful Beast!!

Since I know some of you may be curious, here is my setup! You can check out how she performs on my channel!! PNWFPV!!

Frame: martian 3
Flight controller: betaflight f3 running 3.1.6
Esc's: emax 30a bullet running dshot300
Motors: cobra champion 2205 2350kv
Fpv camera: foxeer hs1177 with 2.5mm lense
Hd cam: gopro hero 4 with lense protector
Vtx: akk switchable 25/200/600
Receiver: spektrum 4649t serial telemetry
Batteries: tattu 4s 1300mah mix of 45 and 75c

Now I've been testing a few different props and havent decided what I like best just yet but have been using:

Racekraft 5040 tri blades
Racekraft 5051 tri blades
Lumineir butter cutters 5050 tri blades

My radio and goggles are pretty standard nothing special I use a spektrum dx6e and fatshark dominator v3s with standard fatshark non diversity module.

Overall I really like this setup so far. I feel it needs a little more top end some times but a lot of the time I'm not using more then 60-70% throttle for what I like to do so I cant complain to much. The all up weight is something I need to weigh out exactly as well but it flies very light and agile so hasnt concerned me much, there is a few things in the martian 3 kit I dont use as well because I felt it was not necessary for the build so it may be a little lighter then the usual martian 3. So far the martian 3 has been the frame for me, I can get it overnight at no extra cost and so far in the few months I have been flying it I have only replaced an arm and a stand off, compared to some of the frames out right now I can buy 3 of these kits and have plenty of spares for the price of a pro frame, and it flies great for me and very easy to tune.

Thanks for reading guys! Check in for more posts and more videos on my channel! Will be posting at least once a week if not more!!

Thanks I'm glad you like it! It is the akk x1, this one to be exact:

I have loved it! Using it on 600mw mainly unless flying with friends and it has never let me down. Runs cooler then my old 200mw vtx I was using previously even cranked to 600mw!

Thanks for looking! Always open to giving constructive feedback and helpful info feel free to message anytime!
