After the 6inch apex that wasn t as expected, i figured it out that 5.5 would be a compromise closer to what i have in mind.
tried to use the 2505 motors and it seems that they are a bit more efficient at mellow flying, as soon as you request more power from them, they use more current that some typical 2207 motors.

That being said, probably will need replacement of the motors.
Need a bit more testing

dvr here from maiden flight here

Wire screening helps also.

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
