Bigger is not always better.
Especially when trying to get off the ground, weight is a serious issue. Sure its nice to have sturdy landing gear and a big battery, but overall it’ll hurt performance. Because of this, I decided to perform a little weight reduction surgery.
Additionally I’ve upgraded my propellers from 5040 triple props to 6040 triple props. Adding an extra inch to my blades has definitely increased performance drasticially.
All this plus I re-calibrated my ESC’s max thrust to the maximum suggested rating as well as re calibrated my controller endpoints to ensure that I can get the maximum performance out of my hardware if needed.
All said and done, the birds flying like never before!
