Extreme battery test
According to the author, the essence of the flight test is to see what happens with a completely new LiPo battery when continuously piloting a 6S quad in gas to floor mode. The current was limited at 180A. In defense of the battery manufacturer, he also noted that batteries from other well-known manufacturers similarly did not perform better.
For those who are not in the know, the author and host of the YT channel “quadmovr” since May 2014 has established himself in the world hobby as a professional pilot and designer of custom FPV drones. The featured content on his channel demonstrates the exemplary quality of piloting drones he built from scratch.

The test involved one of his old high-speed quads (Setup: movr5r2 f80 2500kv 5×5 apc prop 32a kiss esc kiss fc v2), which, by the way, showed a maximum speed of 267 km / h in a flight test four years ago. For comparison, a year earlier, the guys from the world-famous DRL league built a racing drone – DRL X, through which they set a Guinness record in the maximum horizontal flight speed – 264 km / h. For those who are interested, here is a video of the maximum speed flight test itself:
