    Very close to pulling the trigger on this one. Wanted to run the specs by you guys so I don't do something stupid.

    -Carboncore 950 y6 frame
    -Tarot 5008 340kv motors
    -Hobbywing Flyfun 40A opto escs
    -WKM
    -tmotor 1861 props
    -1 or 2 8000mah 6s lipos (preferably 2 for redundancy)
    -I'll probably attach some rails to use with my 3 axis gimbal from rotorsandaerialmedia.com.
    -auw maybe 19 lbs?

    My calculations show that I should be able to lift 45 pounds for an hour and a half, but if I'm a little off then I'm hoping to get 19 pounds for 10 minutes.

    What do you think?

    Best,

    Tom

    Couldn't ever get the thing to fly - devoted a lot of time with several test flights. No crashes, but yaw was ridiculous.

    Think it may have been the frame which was designed for flat 6 originally.

    Moved on to a Tarot flat 6 which crashed in testing because its a crap frame

    Finally broke down and bought a s1000. Absolutely amazing machine. I hate DJI as much as the next guy, but this thing is incredible.
