    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?

  2. Zach Bishop on August 8, 2020 at 9:41 am

    Omg that sound!!!

  3. -Braz- on August 8, 2020 at 9:44 am

    crazy sound. what is its AUW?

  4. Street Dreamz on August 8, 2020 at 9:44 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 😁

  5. Change Agent on August 8, 2020 at 9:46 am

    That sounds meaty AF!

  6. Yosa yogi on August 8, 2020 at 9:46 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”.

  7. MoppelMat on August 8, 2020 at 9:48 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.

  8. Jackie Monroe JEMFPV on August 8, 2020 at 9:48 am

    Holy hell over three hundred amps!!🤪

  9. Messed Fets on August 8, 2020 at 9:48 am

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

  10. PaddleDogC5 on August 8, 2020 at 9:54 am

    Awesome love the speedo!

  11. danlatu on August 8, 2020 at 9:55 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.

  12. Catalyst Machineworks on August 8, 2020 at 9:56 am

    Nothing like the sound of xclass! Love it

  13. Two Watt on August 8, 2020 at 9:57 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…

  14. Bryan De Bruyn on August 8, 2020 at 9:57 am

    That sound… awesome

  15. AntimatePcCustom on August 8, 2020 at 9:58 am

    damn those G readings need some calibration 🙂

  16. Peter Zingler on August 8, 2020 at 9:59 am

    Thats Beastclass i think not x class

  17. Flash Sasha on August 8, 2020 at 10:04 am

    where you get that from amzon or other

  18. Orville Villanueva on August 8, 2020 at 10:05 am

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

  19. ab_ vevo on August 8, 2020 at 10:05 am

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

  20. KYDAWG1 on August 8, 2020 at 10:06 am

    Great flying!! Liked and Subbed.

  21. Papadoc Fpv on August 8, 2020 at 10:07 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 !!!

  22. weird science on August 8, 2020 at 10:07 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

  23. Michael Lafebre on August 8, 2020 at 10:07 am

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

  24. Neil Camara on August 8, 2020 at 10:09 am

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

  25. cobra4829 on August 8, 2020 at 10:09 am

    443 Amp ?? nice

  26. MadProps FPV on August 8, 2020 at 10:12 am

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

  27. Brandon Hall on August 8, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Where do you fly at?

  28. Bilbo Baggins on August 8, 2020 at 10:13 am

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

  29. bwas fpv on August 8, 2020 at 10:14 am

    That was scary af

  30. Andrea Mantegazzi on August 8, 2020 at 10:14 am

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

  31. nerdCopter [Thibodaux Louisiana] on August 8, 2020 at 10:20 am

    +1👍

  32. CRUNCHY FPV on August 8, 2020 at 10:20 am

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

  33. PropsOff on August 8, 2020 at 10:20 am

    Gnarly!

  34. WONKA FANS ONLY on August 8, 2020 at 10:22 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?

  35. Nick Mcbride on August 8, 2020 at 10:23 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

  36. RC Flo on August 8, 2020 at 10:24 am

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

  37. Peter Zingler on August 8, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Peaking at almost 16 kilowatt crazy

  38. the craft king #1 on August 8, 2020 at 10:27 am

    Crazy man nicely done.

  39. DD Yodaman on August 8, 2020 at 10:28 am

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

  40. MindRider on August 8, 2020 at 10:29 am

    SF Bay Area?

  41. Atomic Dom on August 8, 2020 at 10:30 am

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

  42. O D N on August 8, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Where is the X Frame? ^^

  43. Pinki3FPV on August 8, 2020 at 10:31 am

    What the hell that was AWESOME!!!!

  44. Billy Potter on August 8, 2020 at 10:32 am

    Awesome

  45. Liam Bojang on August 8, 2020 at 10:32 am

    nice one looks insane

  46. NorCalFPV on August 8, 2020 at 10:33 am

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

  47. John Lawson on August 8, 2020 at 10:34 am

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

  48. doktor drone on August 8, 2020 at 10:35 am
