Awesome deal, @Steviegeek - question if you don’t mind… that frame was intended as a huge racer; would it be possible, and if so, what do you think would it take to tranistion that frame to a cruiser? (not asking if you would do it, just suggestions on what parts would need swapping out by buyer?)

Hi Tommy @smudge202
This offering is probably more suitable for cruising as opposed to high speed racing as it stands.
The motors at 340KV running on 6S will not have the same thrust as a typical SourceX setup for racing.
The go-to racing motor for this frame is a T-Motor F1000 at 510KV, which on a 15" prop will give greater responsivness than this offering on a 340KV.
All other parts, ESC, PDB etc. are all good for cruising.

What I’m trying to say is, if you buy this it will cruise nicely, but if you want to race it to hell be prepared to change the motors, or just buy something else.

HTH
Steve :smiley:

PS a selection of spare props will be supplied :+1:

Bumping this :grinning:

For avoidance of doubt - Outside my budget at moment.

Does it have a borometer ?
Does it do positions hold ?
Cruise time with a 2600mAHr LiPo packs ?

Yes
Yes (on INAV)
Don’t know (not been used that much)
