The Ultimate 7-inch long range cruiser
FPV drones build for 7-inch propellers are something relatively new in a FPV commmunity. It's not that pilots were not flying with 7-inch drones. It's not that. It's rather the fact, that in last year more and more companies started to design and sell frames for 7-inch propellers, good motors and good propellers. The advantages of 7-inchers over 5-inchers are quite obvious:
- More range and more flight time even when the same battery is used
- Much more list capacity
- Say whatever you want, but one of the best features of 7-incher is how they climb!
It turned out that the trick to having a smooth flying 7-inch long range cruiser quadcopter is to have a frame with thick arms and big motors with low KV. This is why iFlight XL7 was replaced by TBS Source One with 7-inch arms and Brotherhobby 2507 Avenger v2 1500KV motors motors.
It turned out it was a very good decision. Stiffer arms and bigger motors greatly improved flight experience and most of the vibrations and bobbing are gone. Finally a smooth and efficient flight...
