THIS IS MY FULL TIME JOB.
Here are other ways that you can support me:
Catalyst Machineworks is promoting the idea of 6S/low-kv. This means that you INCREASE your battery voltage to 6S, but you DECREASE your motor kv to keep the rpm at the prop the same. So what’s the point? Higher voltage results in lower amps, less voltage sag, cooler-running components, and longer flight time. OR SO THEY SAY.
Today I’ve invited one of the fastest pilots in the world, Evan Turner (HeadsUpFPV) to help test the idea. We’ve got two nearly-identical quads, one running on 4S and one running on 6S, and we’re going to put them against each other and see what the differences are.
