Gravel Pit Revisited - Betaflight F3 Flight Controller Maiden


Just tore out my Naze32 F1 based Flight Controller, and replaced it with Betaflight's F3. Running my newest freestyle rates, stock BetaFlight PIDs, 8khz/8khz gyro/pid loops, with Multishot (ESC's don't like any DSHOT). Also am giving the HQ 5x4x3 V1S PC props a try, and first thoughts about them... needs more thrust, but very little propwash, and smooth flight, but would probably be better with a higher KV motor (than 2300KV). My motors apparently like 4.5+ pitch blades (Such as the DAL T5045, practically launches me into the atmosphere). Maybe I'll give some Cyclones a try next.

This was mainly a test/warmup style flight, and is from the 2nd battery. Would have flown through the construction equipment but I have a stub of an antenna for my X4R-SB (one antenna missing, and the other was cut short, and just had a random amount of insulation removed, hence why I was flying so close to myself.
