So here is my top speed quad which I will be testing out very soon.
Specs:
RCX 2208 2000KV motors
XMS30A ESCs
6" props, though I will try some 5" too to compare speeds. I have many different props to see which one translates to the fastest speed.
4S 1300mAh at the moment, but I will be using a 5S 1800mAh after initial flight tests.

The FC is running Cleanflight. I was going to use Betaflight, but they removed GPS functionality! I'm using a GPS and OSD to measure speed.
In the end, it turned out to be somewhat slapped together. I got a little too excited about a version 2 speed quad, so I'm treating this one as a test/proof of concept. The motor wires are way too long, normally I'd cut them shorter, but I figured for version 2 I might need them longer.

73172
73173
73174
73175
73176


Here are some ideas for version 2:
73177
The airfoil would extend across the whole carbon arm, and possibly even contain the ESC.
73178
73179

Progress has slowed on my v2.
I've narrowed my drop out issues to the XM30a Mini ESCs as mentioned in my video:
