33

Storm Racing Drone Gondi S5 TMotor Spec was born as a fine collaboration with the well-known Storm racer pilot Gondi FPV. Gondi S5 TMotor Spec is a fine-tuned version of the Loki-S5. It is not just only fine-tuned but also with a stretched to the max frame structure.

This collaboration between the manufacturer and Gondi began when they discovered that in order to have more grip in corners, you have to stretch out the wheelbase. More exactly the opposite arms in diagonal. The Gondi S5 TMotor Spec special model is forced to the limit in all characteristics to meet the aggressive style of Gondi.

The handling is very responsive and sharp, and the carbon frame is super light. For more speed, the Loki-S5 was modified in a way that other than the lengthening of the frame they also transformed the component storage space. The Gondi S5 was born as a perfect racer drone compatible with the lightest RunCam Micro Swift CCD camera too.

Let’s see in detail what is so special about this racer quadcopter.

First Look

Gondi S5 isn’t so special about its appearance. It has a 4 mm 3K carbon fiber unibody which is of course extremely light. The top plate is 2mm thick, so the overall weight of the frame is only 59 grams. The all-up-weight is only 293 grams without the battery which is remarkably light in the category of drone racers. The 5-inch arm drone racer seems to be efficient in the weight sector too.

After many prototypes, it seems to be that the stretched arm form proved to be the most effective. It resulted in fast acceleration and extra sharp cornering skills. This agile nature is reflected in the faster roll characteristic and in the stable, 60-degree pitch behavior. The stretched arm distance, from the motor to motor is 255 mm.
