First few pictures are the parts and their weight.

I started by rounding off the edges of the frame, really wish mfg did that from factory, would gladly pay a couple extra bucks for it. I also apply a thin coat of CA all around the edges to help with delamination from impact.

I modified the XSR to have a 1/4 wave length just like the D4Rs and then removed the connector and soldered it directly on the KISS AIO and double taped it under the FC.

The frame assembly was pretty straight forward, very simple stack with these components

The next part was very tedious as the motor wires were too short and I had to prep and solder extra lengths, #paininthebutt. I also added a picture after redoing my FC soft mounting using longer screws.

I mounted my xsr antennas using a mix of vertical post and arm mounting, should work fine.

The FPV pod is super clean and it's the only couple wires of the build so I just need to plug it into the KISS AIO for power and vtx control over serial.

The the final weight in at 237.5g and 350.5g with a 900mAh 4S

How is the linear whip antenna? I have one ready for my next build and hope it performs well enough for everyday flying!.

Been using one on my 3 inch and have really good range on it, for racing it should be just fine

I've been using the VTX03 lately and I'm quite impressed with the signal from such a tiny antenna.

How are those motors?

Do you think it is because those motors say they're rated for 2-3S batteries and you're running a 4s?

Whiffles   8 days ago 

I'm not sure that would be an issue. Most motors can handle 4S.

About the same weight, they look like the ticket as well ;)
