Our next pilot (and quad) featured for #QuadGoals is Jordan Marinov, aka Jaisor. He shows off his TQF SkilZaw Long Range quad, and tells us more about the build. Plus, he showcases the quad on a great flight in southern California.
“Over the last year, I’ve been gravitating towards calmer scenic flights at a longer range (LR). TQF SkilZaw 5.5” has been an excellent platform for that purpose. The frame is exceptionally sturdy, with stiff high-quality carbon arms and body that easily accommodates larger batteries, GoPro, GPS, Crossfire and all other LR bells and whistles. I’ve been a dire fan of EMAX motors since the original red-bottoms.
For this quad, I am using EMAX RSII 2306 1700kv for their smoothness and efficiency. The flight controller is Matek F722-STD running Betaflight 3.5.3 8/8kHz. I still think F722-STD is the best kept secret in FPV, from features (F7, 5xUARTS, Baro, OSD), to cost and durability. For ESC my choice is Aikon AK32 4-in-1 35A, stable DSHOT 1200, good size, weight and superb performance. Lastly, TBS Unify Pro HV and Crossfire to wrap up the LR package. My preferred battery is Indestructible Quads 5S 1300mAh, it outperforms LiPos easily twice the cost. I use several prop combos, HQ V1S either 5” or 5.5”, or T-Motor T5143-1 which are the smoothest props I’ve flown with a balance slightly towards efficiency rather than power.
Gratitude to AirVuz for the feature. Their continued support and shared visuals from this amazing hobby truly inspire and unite us with our common passion for flight.”
