The F4 Flame flightcontroller looks pretty impressive. I expect it will fly very well, if all goes right during the build. Smile

The VTX03 supposed to be very good. But must be careful when selecting channels. The L-band is not legal, and only used by officials.

N1 Canner, lovely bits you've selected there.

That should provide a fair upgrade for you mini too, good selection, should turn your mini beast into a super mini beast...


First thing I'm gonna do with my mini, if I'm not forced to first, is upgrade that crappy, "break me" Clover antenna to an IPEX one, I'm sure it'll have enough range and it's soooo bound to snap off or break, I'm getting some protectors that go either side, but I wanted to try to mount the battery on top, all cheap bits though, see what happens in the field, when I get to the field!

cool

BTW Canner, on your mini, do you run CleanFlight or Beta?

He doesn`t mention EU or Great Britain so maybe it`s just America this applies to.

I doubt I will have any need to use those bands anyway so not really bothered.

I better find out, just to be sure. But not right now. Wink

I think that F4 flight controller is pretty much the same as the
one I got but without the built in VTX.
So I may get some tips on setting it up when I use it for a build.

They are both F4's from the same brand, but the layout is very different. Performance will probably be the same though.
Setup seems pretty clear to me, probably the only thing I have to look up is the motor-layout in Betaflight. It is easy to remember, but I always forget. Smile


btw:
About using the L-band for FPV in Europe, Joshua Bardwell wrote this under the video:
Quote :
If you are using the L-band for FPV video in the United States and Europe (and probably many other places), you are probably breaking the law. And not just a little "look the other way" violation like flying FPV without a HAM license.

Already received the little motors today, order was placed the 8th this month. Send next day, took only 7 days from China to my house. Surprised

The motors quality looks good, can't wait to try them out. Cool

They are very nice indeed. Cool Looks to be the same quality as the bigger ones. Now considering if I should go for 3" or 4" propellers. I have seen builds on youtube with 1306 motors using 4" 3 bladed props. Using bigger props supposed to give much longer flighttime, because the motors are smaller they use less power.
