My martian got run over by a truck!!!


Squashed it almost flat

It wasn't as easy as you might think and the planning i put onto it was more than most builds. You can mount the battery top or bottom with no issues.

Handles really nice with both top and bottom mounted battery.

Parts were all spares i had lying around.
6s 30a ipeaka escs
martian pdb /trimmed the ends off
omnibus f4 from a furibee darkmax, vtx been removed
vtx tx03
rx xm+
dys 2008 2300kv
martian frame modified/10mm standoffs and cut in a few spots.

Clickbait!

Looks pretty flat indeed, CoG must be near perfect this way.

These old ipeaka escs have seen some solid hard times and never let me down. Had them for a few years now and they have seen over 4 different frames and were used when i got them

Feels great and very balanced.

I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those series lipo plugs and running one 3s 1300mah on top and one 1300mah 3s below making it 6s but more balanced better CoG . I could run the series plug behind the camera distributing the power neatly .

I can see it being beyond awesome i just need male xt60's then i could make a plug.

These motors only go 5s but i'm sure they can handle it. and i might have to buy some 5050 props

I have been running the two 3s packs in series on my 7''
