Explorer LR quad is the masterpiece of the collaboration between Flywoo and #micro long range original creator Dave_C . #Micro long range is a brand new field, and we will explore more fun in this field with Dave_C in the future.For me personally, Long Range cruising through epic landscapes is the best thing about FPV! But unfortunately, it was always kind of difficult to practice legally and without bothering people with all the noise a massive 6 or 7" long range quad produces.
So the basic idea behind the original Project #MicroLongRange was born: Scale down a 7" long range quad until it is below 250g take off weight. With the support of an awesome community on Facebook and Instagram as well as a massive development effort by Flywoo, this concept has seen a lot of improvements that are now all implemented in the Explorer LR!
This tiny quad is equipped with GPS, Crossfire and an independent model finder to give you the necessary confidence to push it to the maximum range of digital and analogue video transmission. The powertrain with it's GOKU 16x16 stack and the all new 2700kV 1404 motors spinning 4" props is optimized for maximum efficiency and low weight: Flight times of way over ten minutes on a regular 850mah 4S LiPo battery are easily achievable! Cruising speeds of 40-50 kph (25-30mph) are astonishingly high for such a small quad and have allowed me to do 10km (6 mile) round trips easily. And the best thing about it: It's incredibly quiet! You will barely be able to hear it flying by as soon as you are a few dozen meters away. ”

Flywoo Goku Gps Mini V1.0 rescue function how to work ?
1. Before disarm, GPS must search for more than 5 satellites to lock the home position.
2. After disarm, observe the OSD data during the flight, and the rescue function can work normally only if the distance exceeds 100 m. Otherwise, the quad will crash.
3. If the remote control suddenly loses signal, the GPS rescue function will work automatically and return to the home position. (Set the AUX of GPS rescue mode in betaflight Failsafe, the default is AUX3 2000)5\Flywoo ATOMIC 5.8G antenna customized for Explorer LR ! Of course it is also suitable for any other FPV drones!

How can I rate a quad that I never got...
I tried reaching out to costumer service but they avoid the problem.
So I guess I just lost my money...
Ok, so I got it after waiting a month and a half, issue was the receiver bound and updated as expected, yet gave zero output to the FC. Had to swap it out for another one out of a different quad to verify that was the issue... needless to say I bought a bind and fly and got a plug and fly with a bad receiver installed instead.
after that it did pull off a crazy 18 minute flight time, but I still feel ripped off about the receiver
thanks to Dave_C's formula, this bird flies amazing. Flywoo's price is unbeatable but their delivery times were sub-par. At this price, the sting of losing a long range craft is lessened and so you can focus on flying and less on worrying. Build quality on mine was perfect. Betaflight was tuned and set up properly. I just had to bind, put in my rates and modes and I was off. My first long range bird with GPS.
I bought the Flywoo MLR analogue version and can fully recommend it.
It is absolutely awesome. It is a great package, well put together components and good value for money.
The default tune is really good. It flies amazing. It is better than I expected.
All credits to Dave_C for a great design implementation - and FlyWoo for bringing it to market.
Here is one of the first flights so you can see how it flies warts and all. 30kmh wind on the day but it performed quite well considering.
And the bad points:
Order comms from FlyWoo are not the best. I ordered, had nothing in the way of updates until I heard from local carrier it was going to be delivered. I was a bit worried as this was first order from FlyWoo however this seems normal for FlyWoo.
So don't expect great/any comms!, but do expect it to arrive eventually. You might not be happy with delivery times, but the product is great when it arrives.
I would definitely purchase the MLR and from FlyWoo again.
