    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

  2. danlatu on June 10, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    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.

  3. Bryan De Bruyn on June 10, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    That sound… awesome

  4. AntimatePcCustom on June 10, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    damn those G readings need some calibration 🙂

  5. Lunatic FPV on June 10, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    320 amps??? That’s over 14 kilowatts…

  6. Two Watt on June 10, 2022 at 7:18 pm

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

  7. Catalyst Machineworks on June 10, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Nothing like the sound of xclass! Love it

  8. Jackie Monroe JEMFPV on June 10, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Holy hell over three hundred amps!!🤪

  9. Mind Rider on June 10, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    SF Bay Area?

  10. cj691 on June 10, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Haha, I need one of these monsters.

  11. MoppelMat on June 10, 2022 at 7:24 pm

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

  12. Michael Lafebre on June 10, 2022 at 7:24 pm

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

  13. Change Agent on June 10, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    That sounds meaty AF!

  14. Justain Choe on June 10, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    i was so bored watching this, i thought i was watching nascar.

  15. Street Dreamz on June 10, 2022 at 7:26 pm

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

  16. Bilbo Baggins on June 10, 2022 at 7:28 pm

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

  17. Neil Camara on June 10, 2022 at 7:29 pm

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

  18. Kurt Barrett on June 10, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Dude god damn. That intro music is at like 200% wind it down. RIP ears f*@^

  19. PaddleDogC5 on June 10, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Awesome love the speedo!

  20. nerdCopter on June 10, 2022 at 7:37 pm


  21. KYDAWG1 on June 10, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Great flying!! Liked and Subbed.

  22. silent_majority on June 10, 2022 at 7:38 pm

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

  23. cobra4829 on June 10, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    443 Amp ?? nice

  24. Liam Bojang on June 10, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    nice one looks insane

  25. Nick Mcbride on June 10, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    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

  26. Pinki3FPV on June 10, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    What the hell that was AWESOME!!!!

  27. Orville Villanueva on June 10, 2022 at 7:43 pm

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

  28. RC Flo on June 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

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

  29. Dominic Sierakowski on June 10, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    holy shit

  30. Billy Potter on June 10, 2022 at 7:47 pm


  31. ab_ vevo on June 10, 2022 at 7:50 pm

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

  32. Brandon Hall on June 10, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Where do you fly at?

  33. Peter Zingler on June 10, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Thats Beastclass i think not x class

  34. Nicholas Calvi on June 10, 2022 at 7:52 pm

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

  35. Zach Bishop on June 10, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Omg that sound!!!

  36. Atomic Dom on June 10, 2022 at 7:57 pm

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

  37. -Braz- on June 10, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    crazy sound. what is its AUW?

  38. Yosa yogi on June 10, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    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”.

  39. CatiaDr on June 10, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Makes me miss my 10"

  40. PropsOff on June 10, 2022 at 8:00 pm


  41. O D N on June 10, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Where is the X Frame? ^^

  42. Messed Fets on June 10, 2022 at 8:03 pm

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

  43. Vint Wk on June 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    a fk monster, gongrats

  44. MCO on June 10, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    300 Amps ! That is 10 times what my esc’s are rate for I use 50 amps on a flat out punch with my 5 inch it’s insane

  45. John Lawson on June 10, 2022 at 8:07 pm

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

  46. Andrea Mantegazzi on June 10, 2022 at 8:08 pm

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

  47. bwas fpv on June 10, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    That was scary af

  48. DD Yodaman on June 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

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

  49. CT Landscape & Maintenance Solutions on June 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    the faa dosnt allow drone flying over 100 mph

  50. Peter Zingler on June 10, 2022 at 8:10 pm
