Few more, good size comparison pictures. The 6hv ult has a super agressive look to it.


The e5s boom isn't as short as it looks in the last picture, but the 6hv boom is still longer (I believe the 6hv takes over 625mm no problem?)

I have an E5 also. Nice machine but much too heavy to perform great IMO. Mine is nearly 9.5lb.

That is rather heavy. That's like 152 oz. By comparison, my Ultimate weighs 135 oz. all up with 12S3000 40C.

Finished my wiring. Turned out pretty clean but it was very tricky.

Looks good OTS.
I do like those 4 point cano mounts. Us testers are supposed to be getting an update packet at some point. I think that will be the best part.

OTS,

Absolutely beautiful job on the wiring, sir.

If I might suggest, I would put the BEC on the outside of the frames for airflow purposes.

I had one mounted inside and did not have an issue with it, but it is highly recommended to have air flowing over it, sir.

I am very interested in your flight reports sir-looks like you are getting very close!

With an open bottom the BEC or anything else mounted there will get lot's-o-flow over it.
Unless just hovering which if you've seen Snap's vids he doesn't do very much of.

"Unless just hovering which if you've seen Snap's vids he doesn't do very much of."

Great point! I have seen his videos and had the privilege of seeing him fly in person.

I just prefer lots of airflow over BEC's and ESC's (I don't care for ESC's up under the canopy either).

Here's mine with the canopy off ... remember that this is a prototype version and doesn't have some of the goodies we added to the production version.
