SkyStars G730L 7 inch FPV Kit/PNP - Budget Freestyle/Long-range quad!


This model was just posted to Gearbest, and it has got my attention. I'm sure a lot of other people will be interested in it as well. This is the first 7 inch kit I've seen at a reasonable price, so I'm hoping this will turn into an owners thread.

I've been wanting to build a 7 inch freestyle rig for a while, but parts are pretty expensive as it's still a bit of a niche. This is the first 7 inch kit I've seen offered, and the price is fairly reasonable on it considering the parts (BLHeli_32, 6s compatible, proper Runcam camera etc.). I keep my ear to the ground, and I haven't heard anything bad about the SkyStars stuff yet. Hopefully I can get my hands on one to share the performance of it!

Very interesting! I hadn't noticed this one yet. So far I am quite impressed with the Skystars S225, and like you say, I haven't heard anything bad about any of their other models either, so this thing should be pretty sweet.

I am hoping to get a bit more love and time with my 7'' this weekend. :0. I am also considering buying another identical frame and stacking the arms making them 8mm thick, Which sounds crazy but this thing is essentially a 7'' floss frame copy so she has floppy arms. last i flew it i was flying around a tight track and it honestly made my neck hurt i was straining so hard.

I think so . had a little fly today it has a lot of power on 5s but its all at the last quarter of the throttle range . needs tuning but the potential is there it floats around nicely.

Well prepped and ready to go.... when setting up my radio switches on Betaflight (yesterday morning)... I found 1 motor locked up with a loose magnet.

Now I have a request into Gearbest with a video to show them.

So my maiden is on hold until Gearbest makes this right.

I got this one out over the weekend, it is nice. Lots of power on 4S with the 7 Inch props.... I have no need for 6S on this ship.

The video is clean (I added a cap to the battery leads as insurance, since I had it apart to add soft mounts to FC stack and soldered on crossfire).

2 Thumbs up for the price. I am now hunting a deal on a second one.

Next time I fly this one, I will captures some DVR footage.
