Sunday is flight testing day ...

Completed 3 builds this week ... two home made 5in builds and one I-flight 7in frame kit. All three flew well indoors, the I-Flight took off smoothly outdoors in 3 deg C temps, though it didn't fly too far or to great heights ... but it's smooth and very quiet.

I-Flight 7 in on 6in 6048 Idealfly props running on Betaflight 3.2.2 with Emax RS2205 2300KV motors.

5BuildOne, homebuild frame with 260 kit arms running on Foxxeer F303 flight controller and Emax MT2206 II 1500KV motors. Props are two bladed 5in Azure, not enough clearance for 6in props.

Build no 2, Garil260, homebuild frame with 260 kit arms running on SPRacing F3 flight controller and Garila X2406 1900KV motors. Props are three 6in Idealfly, lots of punch in this one.

There are 3 more builds to complete: 2x based on 8in kit arms (360 size), able to carry a Runcam 2 and one more 5in build. After that hopefully weather gets better and there'll plenty of time for pushing these quads to do what they do best ... fly outdoors.
