You do know the props don't spin faster then on a 4S quad.. right?

Well done Dutch. I like how you are following through on your reviews with a field opinion and recommendations.

You did get my attention with this one and it has most all the right ingredients right out of the box too. I'm convinced I want a 5" 6s copter this spring. It's only a matter of which one right

Thanks brother
It's actually pretty simple (IMHO).. this Wizard.. or if you want a slightly better quad for a few more coins: The Diatone 5" 6S Tyrant..

The GepRC Mark2 is Great as well by the way.. but.. not a 6S quad..

I've been doing some research on this wizard with keen interest. I have found that there is an issue with the ESC blheli settings. 

There have been incidents of what has been called a death spin. Striking a limb or coming out of a roll the esc's where not firing quick enough under certain conditions.  it would start this center axle flat spin and of course ... spin in and crash.

There is nothing in betaflight that would effect it.  There's a couple changes you can make in the blheli firmware to pull that out.  I would have to look up the specifics again.

Watch my last video again sir 😉 
OR.. pay a bit more for say a GepRC / Diatone quad... and then Not have to worry about this 🙂
