    That sounds meaty AF!

  2. MoppelMat on March 16, 2021 at 12:21 am

    there are people biking around… if you’d hit one, you chop their heads right off with this beast. I don’t like that.

  3. Michael Lafebre on March 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    You could build a helicopter for less and fly 3d but that would take more skill to build and fly.👌🤘😝

  4. Liam Bojang on March 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    nice one looks insane

  5. Atomic Dom on March 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Great video man keep it up never give up!!! I wish I had a racing drone

  6. Orville Villanueva on March 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    What location is this? I’ve been trying to find a place to fly my quad.

  7. PaddleDogC5 on March 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Awesome love the speedo!

  8. Paolo Milana on March 16, 2021 at 12:24 am

    SF Bay Area?

  9. weird science on March 16, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Im all about micros and whoops but this is a serious quad I’d love to fly one but I bet the props alone cost more than my goggles lol

  10. Two Watt on March 16, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Did that say a 400 amp draw at around 48 volts? That’ more than my 2 story house pulls if I turn everything on…

  11. bwas fpv on March 16, 2021 at 12:28 am

    That was scary af

  12. MadProps FPV on March 16, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Man I’d love to get my flow on with that thing!

  13. ab_ vevo on March 16, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Dig it…but maybe a little less of "entering space" and a lot more of proximity🍻

  14. -Braz- on March 16, 2021 at 12:33 am

    crazy sound. what is its AUW?

  15. Bilbo Baggins on March 16, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Having a quantum computing AI system controlling hoards of these and remaking and repairing themselves with 3d printers is scary thought lol.

  16. Catalyst Machineworks on March 16, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Nothing like the sound of xclass! Love it

  17. doktor drone on March 16, 2021 at 12:37 am

    this is fast! awesome. i like this.thanks for sharing, my friend 🙂

  18. Zach Bishop on March 16, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Omg that sound!!!

  19. danlatu on March 16, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I don’t get it. X class that is, you might as well fpv a 450 class heli. One crash and majority of props break and you can’t turtle. I like racing without fear of a midair on 5” class.

  20. DD Yodaman on March 16, 2021 at 12:38 am

    This cannonball is one of the most intense, beefy sounding quad yet in flight! Another great build TS👍

  21. PropsOff on March 16, 2021 at 12:38 am


  22. Billy Potter on March 16, 2021 at 12:39 am


  23. Neil Camara on March 16, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Fucking crazy when it goes fast, I love the wicked sound of the props and motors!!!

  24. AntimatePcCustom on March 16, 2021 at 12:40 am

    damn those G readings need some calibration 🙂

  25. Pinki3FPV on March 16, 2021 at 12:43 am

    What the hell that was AWESOME!!!!

  26. KYDAWG1 on March 16, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Great flying!! Liked and Subbed.

  27. Bryan De Bruyn on March 16, 2021 at 12:44 am

    That sound… awesome

  28. Jackie Monroe JEMFPV on March 16, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Holy hell over three hundred amps!!🤪

  29. Yosa yogi on March 16, 2021 at 12:49 am

    I love that whistle the motors and props make in the wind. Almost makes me fall asleep at 2am listening to this. Your flying is great bro nice handling. Thank Neil for this super ship racer. Lol. How you liking the battery placement on that machine? I’m going for the taz in June. I will post up my very first vid soon. Can’t wait. I’m calling it the “katana’s edge”.

  30. silent_majority on March 16, 2021 at 12:51 am

    I dig the way it just hangs when inverted. Its so OP it defies gravity haha

  31. cobra4829 on March 16, 2021 at 12:52 am

    443 Amp ?? nice

  32. CatiaDr on March 16, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Makes me miss my 10"

  33. John Lawson on March 16, 2021 at 12:54 am

    The sound that beast makes is one of a kind. Hard to follow it, because its so daayyyyyum fast.

  34. Andrea Mantegazzi on March 16, 2021 at 1:00 am

    How did you get the speed and acceleration on the screen?

  35. O D N on March 16, 2021 at 1:02 am

    Where is the X Frame? ^^

  36. the craft king #1 on March 16, 2021 at 1:02 am

    Crazy man nicely done.

  37. nerdCopter on March 16, 2021 at 1:02 am


  38. Nick Mcbride on March 16, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Jusr a thought id love to see your throttle on screen too just curious lol nice though love hearing that thing fly and seeing it

  39. Street Dreamz on March 16, 2021 at 1:10 am

    What a beast! Looks better with the braces but definitely will be faster without! Hopefully if weather is good this weekend I can maiden 😁

  40. mountaindewdude76 on March 16, 2021 at 1:11 am

    damn that’s awesome! It almost looks like the Cannonball floats around like a much smaller quad. Does it feel any different, or what kind of differences do you notice between the Cannonball and a smaller quad?

  41. WONKA FANS ONLY on March 16, 2021 at 1:12 am

    nice job flying a spot where there are people around. seriously are you that ignorant or do you just not care about the safety of others?

  42. Papadoc Fpv on March 16, 2021 at 1:13 am

    Badass flight, it sounds menacing! I would love to have one, but I already spend a small fortune on whoops to 7 inch quads. Keep tearing it up !!!

  43. Messed Fets on March 16, 2021 at 1:13 am

    So Good dude!. Try it without the front and rear braces. You’ll notice it’ll fly like 15Mhr faster and handle better. 🙂

  44. Brandon Hall on March 16, 2021 at 1:13 am

    Where do you fly at?

  45. Flash Sasha on March 16, 2021 at 1:13 am

    where you get that from amzon or other

  46. Greg Tutko on March 16, 2021 at 1:14 am

    the faa dosnt allow drone flying over 100 mph

  47. CRUNCHY FPV on March 16, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Goddamn i love the sound of X-Class rigs rippin’ around….

  48. Peter Zingler on March 16, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Peaking at almost 16 kilowatt crazy

  49. RC Flo on March 16, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Omg this thing pulls up to 310 A at 45 V😮 that is close to 14 KW of power/heat. Just insane!

  50. Peter Zingler on March 16, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Thats Beastclass i think not x class
