I finally watched Kebab’s two videos in full length. He actually makes some good points.
I’ve always been a big fan of looking at disc load for quads, just like wing load matters for planks (fixed wing). If you look at high-performance 3D plane, they are light, powerful, and have relatively large wing surface area for their weight and power.
The gyroscopic effect of larger props providing more stability is new to me, but does makes sense. Think of how the turning wheels on a bicycle or motorbike help to keep it upright and stable at speed. (Downside is that it does take more power to change course.)
To me, it sounds like he just doesn’t like the current 2-3" offerings. However, he is continuing to look for a small “Tiny Whoop” class micro that will live up to his standards. So his dismissal of micro quads is not quite as categorical and absolute as the discussion made it sound like.
Bottom line: I’m not giving up on micros, but I’m not giving up on Kebab either.
Plus, I’m working on a 250g 5-inch LOS acro quad, which will hopefully give me the best of both worlds.
