    A little update on my build. I didn't do bottom cover coz on my V2 the bottom one is heavier than the top one. I know that vortexes behind the end of the top one will give drag, but I thought that saved weight without bottom cover will make it even. But a friend suggested that braking due to vortex drag might be worse than added extra few grams to have a smooth surface all the way, so covered everything with 0.3mm PET. 10gr extra was added.

    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    It wasn't long, I just posted the pic and went for maiden. Came back feeling like a million bucks- 188 km/h on maiden and there's more potential in this quad I'm just just in the door, will chop the video and tell more once done.
    Edit: Damn it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have no video I have a video of it going, but DVR didn't record OSD readings... OSD was flickering during flight but no big deal to me and when I checked recordings after, there was no OSD overlay. WTF??? No OSD is shown either on computer, or in DVR replay in my DomHD2s. I'm charging my batteries atm and will go again today, and this time I'll have to record my goggles screen with my camera as I've no time to go through FS customer support to fix the issue...

    I've built loads of different copters and most of them rolled out as smooth as a hot knife through butter, but with this speed challange Universe just doesn't make it easy for me... Every speedster has some hiccups and drawbacks and the story still doesn't end, but I'll show that bastard that every man is a blacksmith of his own destiny

    I came back from maiden and realised that my DomHD2 DVR doesn't record OSD readings. I was gutted and afraid that I won't be able to to do my 188 km/h again. Checked my camera if it can record directly from goggles' optics and that cheered me up a bit. On the double I charged my batteries and went again to the field- 194 km/h!!! I was ready to go to my backyard with a stick to release my anger and lash it out on a tree, and now I'm ready to give a hug to anybody
