Catalyst Machineworks Speed Addict 210 Rocks

This was the gopro maiden for my super-low Speed Addict build. I used the short standoffs in the kit (1/2″ tall) for the top plate instead of the medium-height standoffs. Shoved the X4R under the dodo instead of strapping it on the back and put the VTX there as designed. Not enough height for the VTX and receiver to share the same location.

Gotta say, I’m blown away by the performance. Even with a gopro on top, the quad just goes where I want it to. This is one of the only times I’ve had a lunch racing session and didn’t break a single prop.

These Lumenier 2206-11 motors continue to amaze me. They are also showing me that SMC batteries are garbage. They sag more than my Bonkas and Tattus, which are similar in age or much older. I don’t like to bash products, but when something is over-hyped I feel it’s necessary to put the correct info out there. SMC = garbage, save your money and buy something else! If I have duds, I welcome SMC to send me some replacements to re-try.
