to hear reports of FC failures, it feels like we're taking some steps back. Either things are being rushed/cheapened and QC is down. Or they are putting out models without a lot of testing. I think I might sit out a product cycle here and wait and see what FC/esc/motor combos are relatively bulletproof again.

Looks to me like there is no need for 3s lipos on this..
Maybe it will be reliable on 2s?

The problem with these aio FC is that if anything fails it's an expensive to replace.
My builds with seperate 4in1 ESC and silverised toy FC is much cheaper to build and fix if it goes wrong.

My latest creation is a beta85x frame and 8000kv motors weighing 41g an getting me 6 minute flights easily ..and still pretty fast and powerful.

So, are they actually going with the Gemfan 65mm props for this or, are they making their own version?

I never was particularly impressed with the Gemfans on the old brushed micros, I much preferred the Kingkong 65mm props. I think the Kingkongs were a blatent copy of the Gemfans but, they actually turned out better, in my opinion.

I found the gemfans gave slightly better performance but are ridiculously brittle.

They need to create better motors for 3s, as it does not do mutch after 50% throttle only weights more and heats up faster...

This is what I think too.
1102 9000kv probably still to high KV for the size of motor.
Probably needs something like 1105 7500kv maybe for 3s maybe even lower kv, I have some 1103 6500kv motors which might be good to try, but the fitting is 4 hole not 3....

Still , on 2s this looks plenty fast enough and I think the 3s is just hype...

Well, let us wait and see what these things are like in the hands of normal users when we really find out the truth about them before sharing affiliate codes willy nilly lol.
If and when I get one I will review it thoroughly and point out any weak areas I see so people can make more informed decision rather than just sharing blindly affiliate codes with copy and paste information from the web site and just believing any old hype that's put out there lol..

Sorry but lately all the hype and affiliate chasing everywhere is starting to get to me lol, it's nothing personal to any one person but just a general thing I've noticed ..
Or maybe this crappy uk weather is getting to me haha, wind and rain and not much flying makes me cranky!!!

3S is big time hype on these quads. If they really want 3s to be beneficial it needs a higher amp esc (5 is not enough) and some tri blade props. Im telling you 42g dry on 3s with some gemfan 2540s is insane.

I've preordered this one. I think it is a logical step for me from Whoop style to outdoor quads. And I have several 2S lipo's for my KingKong ET100 that I can use.

25mw on a mobula is barely cutting it. Surely more will go on this quad?
