    They are Sony VTC6

  • Nice!  - also looking forward to a flighttime.

    I think you forgot one item in your setup, the battery, From the picture i think you have a 2s setup with 18650 cells, and the discription in the video says 3300 mAh, but which ones?

  • Can't wait to see how much flight time you get. Great build.
