This guy sent me a racing drone that he says can break 160 mph. What’s the secret? I dunno…. the parts are actually pretty normal. But it runs 6S 2700kv? How do you even do that without lighting the whole thing on fire?!?!

  3. Travis Olander on September 23, 2020 at 11:47 am

    Best outro lol, with these wide open plains in Utah, I’m in the mood for something stupid.

  4. DELTACX10 on September 23, 2020 at 11:49 am

    8:45 I hope that black rectangle isn’t on purpose.
    10:31 ok this is definitely in purpose. I hate it when people do this.
    10:56 and there is another.

  6. TechX on September 23, 2020 at 11:53 am

    I just finished this build. I’m a bit nervous to put Phantom’s Pids in as the build is a bit different. Its working fine don’t want to screw it up. What do you think load his configuration in the cli tab or just wing it. LOL

  7. Reece Engineering on September 23, 2020 at 11:54 am

    12:28 The same thing exists in Airsoft

  8. ricq on September 23, 2020 at 11:54 am

    over 4kW of stuff happening in a vehicle that small, amazing!

  9. Rich B on September 23, 2020 at 11:55 am

    "I don’t know how fast those run where" lol yeah ok, as you giggle like a school girl inside.

  10. Drawde1Joints1Sneek on September 23, 2020 at 11:58 am

    i wish that someone could send me a drone

  11. Roscoe P on September 23, 2020 at 11:59 am

    That’s what I did with my first 5inch build. Built a race quad I also freestyle with only down side is I have camera angle so high coz I like to freestyle plus do power runs. Running 1950k at 6s

  12. Rich Sugden on September 23, 2020 at 11:59 am

    I think just a sound track and moving the video camera back and forth .. never saw it!!

  13. Jemtac1st on September 23, 2020 at 12:00 pm

    lol, the sound of the thing, great vid. You are an amazing pilot. Just ordered a Eachine Novice-II 1-2S to dip my toe into fpv, will I be able to learn to fly fpv with an Eachine Novice II?

  14. Tokmol Boto on September 23, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    Do you have to get permit to fly fpv drone in us and can just fly in open space but away from crowd or theres a designated place to fly fpv drone ?? thanks man

  15. GoatFX on September 23, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    Hey have you seen this guy who put two 6s packs on a quad to make it 12s… https://youtu.be/flKgIDaGysA — I’m just getting into flying quads and I have the Tinyhawk Freestyle.

  16. Window Washer FPV on September 23, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    The FFA on duck tape 😂

  17. Jonathan Thorstensson on September 23, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    "but i used different propps"
    WHY DId YOU EVEN?!

    It is fast though. But "no the best speed run was on different props" makes him a tard.
    A fast tard.

  18. Ricky Reeves on September 23, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    You could have used masking tape! That duct tape had to leave a mark. Lol

  19. jakester142 on September 23, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    I saw 191 amps on the osd which makes this quad close to 5hp

  20. Eddie Banuelos on September 23, 2020 at 12:09 pm

    Yooo is this the map from liftoff?!?!

  21. Sam on September 23, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    FAA OPEN UP!

  22. Ricky Rodriguez on September 23, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    With this drone do you need to register it with FAA? Sorry I bought my first drone

  23. - SICKFAST on September 23, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    holy F#%$%&* sheet that thing is mean

  24. vilius b on September 23, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    Ohh bardwell why is your scren foging when u go faster 😄

  25. Stitch FPV on September 23, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    They should have those props at hobbytown in Knoxville

  26. Ou†. FPV on September 23, 2020 at 12:20 pm

    This beginning is so epic ;D 😀 😀 f…. FAA

  27. przemopgx on September 23, 2020 at 12:20 pm

    WoW

  28. Matthew Haney on September 23, 2020 at 12:25 pm

    Dude it screams! How fucking awesome!

  29. mike216ism on September 23, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    Those motors are rated for 4s. Surprised you can run them on 6s without burning up

  30. John MacIver on September 23, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    Steele is one of the best quad guys out there. It is amazing to watch him fly. I’ve watched endless hours of RotoRiot as well. Thanks Bardwell, for all the great videos.

  31. ASHLEY T. on September 23, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    Holly F’n Sh@#

  32. Joshua Bardwell on September 23, 2020 at 12:31 pm

    I did NAHT go over 100 mph. Oh hai Mark.

    Sorry if you’re seeing this upload twice.

  33. Jeremy Williams - Williams Aerial on September 23, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    Freaking awesome

  34. Jody Hudson on September 23, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    That was hypothetically screaming fast! Flies really well, ie. surprisingly stable and locked in. She’s quick, agile, and looks like a ton of fun. Thanks for the vid!

  35. dgretlein on September 23, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    What the hell are you filming? I can’t see a thing! Very cool.
    What flight time do you get?

  36. Ozzy3333333 on September 23, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    How about 160mph on 3" props and 6S! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmg_gIBH7Ck

  37. Robin Visser on September 23, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    Someone with video skills can def calculate the speed when he blurred the numbers

  38. Paul Waldin on September 23, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    Well I learned to fly DRL sim and my first quad was a 2700kv 6s quad…The quad can still do 3mph…just leave the throttle alone and build the opening of it…..slowly!

  39. Extrem3Hunt on September 23, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    Never thought it would be such a big deal to go over 100Kph. Regulations in the US are harsh. I’m in the EU with a build doing almost 200Kph with flight times going upto 15 minutes… The only limiting factor I have is battery as I have is the 6s 75C Tattu R-line as battery shipping is a huge pain in my country.

  40. ASHLEY T. on September 23, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    Josh, a Gopro would go on top, a car battery would go on top and still go 90 MPH…

  41. Deadswine on September 23, 2020 at 12:37 pm

    Damn, if you somehow hit someone with that they will die on the spot ^^

  42. Noah Mcelwey on September 23, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    Such a darn shame that black bar glitch happens on the speed when you hit full tgrottle

  43. Bren the Wizard on September 23, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Holy shit

  44. Georgio Mascagni on September 23, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    What type of amp draw does,this monster make. I’d love to see more,videos of this best. Do you think it’s pushing 200a on full punch out? Why not get RDQ to ship you some fresh 1350 or 1500 6s packs.

  45. Tarx Morrison on September 23, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    wow! IB – can I ask if you can make a video that explains what is the difference between FREESTYLE fpv and RACING fpv???

  46. Jody Hightower on September 23, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Why is he censoring the speed, did I miss a joke?

  47. TiagoTiago on September 23, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Won’t the FAA ask Google to find who the guy now that his channel is known?

  48. TiagoTiago on September 23, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Aren’t you worried the FAA will calculate the speed based on the visible landmarks on the video?

  49. Devlin Lynden on September 23, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    aren’t those motors 4s?

  50. Nicolas Azar on September 23, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Carbon fiber props for this one…would be awesome 😍
