As I usually mention, I am fairly new to racing drones. My first 2 were RTF and cam early spring 2018. By August 2018 I did me first build and so far have built 5 from scratch.

Each time I do a build I implement something new I’ve learned and retrofit prior builds to match.

The quad below will be a culmination of everything I’ve learned so far. I’ve never used the stack or motor before. I’m conducting an experiment using 2207 2450kv and 4” props on 5s.

I watch a lot of YouTube reviews on cameras, flight controllers, esc, frames etc.. you name it, I watch it.

I typically dry fit the build before I solder anything.

Here is a part list for this build,

Proton 4” 293 grams w/ props
* Mamba F405 30x30 F4 stack w/ blheli_S 40amp esc
* Iflight Xing 2207 2450KV
Gemfan Flash 4052
* TBS Unify pro mounted on whitenoise Unify pro mounting board
* Realpit vtx switch
* Runcam Micro Swift 2
* Frsky R-XSR
* Luminier Axii Stubby
* Running Smart audio and Lua Scripts

I’m looking to record the build video and share

Thanks, the antennas are out of the strike zone, they will never touch unless the antennas bend backwards.
What do you use for those? I use zip ties and shrink wrap still, and they're a little too flexible. I wouldn't be able to work a tolerance like that
