Banggood is having a sale on boards right now, just bought one two days ago. Arris is by fast the best priced batteries (at least with the 1500s)
I've never ordered from Bangood. I live in the USA & was thinking their shipping would take a bit for arrival. Do they even have a USA wharehouse?

Each product is different, you can select USA warehouses only, but I find they're pretty good no matter what, true they're not Amazon good, but for the price differences I find it's worth it.

I would add a battery charger & parallel board also. Extra packs too
Yes. I have selected already SkyRC iMAX B6 Mini Professional Balance Charger/Discharger SK-100084 for RC Drone FPV Racing Multi Rotor but what parallel board you are talking about ? I dont get that.

I have that same charger, it's awesome! And a parallel board is something you plug into your charger to charge multiple batteries at once, typically up to 6 at a time

Hey guys. I change the 250mm frame with X215 Pro Carbon Fiber because its with 70 grams less than the 250mm ARRIS frame but I was wondering what kind of propelers to put on the EMAX 2600 kv and hat kind of a batteries to use for a start. Something like 3s 1300-1500mAh provably ? DAL T5045 Cyclone Tri-Blade or DAL T5040 v2 tri-blade or DAL T4045 V2 tri-blade or Racecraft 5051 tri-blade or diatone ghost 5030 or HQ 5040. And wich one will give me the most and the less flight time ? How I can calculate approximately ? Any suggestions ? My ESC supports 3-6s lipos and 35A continuous currents and 50A burst.

Emax props are awesome for emax motors, they have amazing lift efficiency specifically for their motors and 3s would be good or 4s, the 4s is heavier but holds more current. I'm a 4s only kinda guy myself lol

I second those Emax props. I really like the Emax Avan Flow 5”. Also go ahead and get 4S packs. You won’t regret

Hello guys ! I have been busy lately and I didnt have time for my quad. But let me give you some updates. I am using a litle bit different parts than before I started on this project. I am using now LISAMRC LS x220 lightweight carbon fiber frame with the same EMAX 2600kv with the same ESC 4 in 1 - Holybro Kakute V2 - Tekko32 4-in-1 ESC Combo and TATTU R-Line 1550mAh 4s 100c Lipo Battery and I chose to take the DAL 5045 BN Tri-Blade Bullnose. I have a question. Can I fly the drone without camera and fpv set but only with the TARANIS radio and the XSR reciver ? 42447144_659743417743827_2705335964867231744_n.jpg 42484855_2214002472004115_5659046302164451328_n.jpg

Looking good! Sure, you can fly without your camera & vtx. Just make sure to zip tie or tape those motor wires onto the arms, your props will eat them up really quick!

@Fpvracer-Looks like its gonna be a fun one. And don’t forget to check for direct shorting with volt/ohm meter or “smokestopper”

Hello everyone. I had problem today when I try to plug the battery. While I was testing the motor in BF and configuring my setup I had no problem with the battery. But when I plug it in today this happened. Any idea why ? I check for shortages I didnt see its pretty clean set up. I was thinking about the capacitor might be the problem. I need to discharge it from time to time or any idea why this happen ? 46492272_1963750583925743_2217359956997308416_n.jpg

Instead of the X4RSB receiver, I'd go with the R-XSR. Much smaller and cheaper and still full telemetry output
