If long flights are not a concern, going with 3 blades will shorten flight time more and stunt top end speed. It is fast enough
My last session short flight times was due to improper motor install from my quick field repair. The screws were a bit too long and I had some rubbing going on. I have truly fixed the problem since then and I expect my flight times to go back to normal.

The 3 blade experiment is just that. If it works. fine. If not. Oh well. On to the next thing.

All good. I have a Eachine Assassin 180 impulse buy, I admit.... in fact I don't really want it now, anyone interested, i'm selling it, comes with one battery... I flew it twice yesterday, heck.... It is real nice honestly with 3 flight modes to play with, and I verified it all on cleanflight. it begs to be tinkered with . it has both gyros, mag and gps. FPV ready with radio

I probably will, this quad has all the bells and whistles, I can do all adjustments through the OSD, so happy about this... the previous owner has it setup for 4s, and I have to knock the settings down of course back to 3 cells, it is a little hot to practice with.

the camera is a pz0420m according to the sale ad. the transmitter is a eachine 200mw just like the combos they sell on Banggood.com..... the camera with that combo is a 600 line, me and my son we were playing with it one night, looks real nice.

the weather is finally coming around ... I still need more stick time with it ... I do need to order another antenna for the Fatshark, too much interference

Thanks! I am looking for a new camera and transmitter that does well in low light and dark light transfer... We shall see. You were doing great out there!
