QAV-XS

Not a fan of any of the antenna placements, but it is what it is. Hate that pigtail, and the camera mounts on the frame made the stack a bigger pain than it really is, so I just crammed the RX on top of it. I might cut those up a bit so I can put the RX under the stack, but after having to re-solder everything cuz I didnt test fit the top plate with the camera plates, I might wait until it becomes an issue. Going to add an led stip at some point here, but not looking forward to trying to fit it in there just yet.

Would love to try out this frame. I've been on the look for a stretched X for while now and this just might be it... I also heard a rumor that D-Quad is releasing a stretched Obsession too, so I just might have to wait for a bit, for now only saw it in american retailers...

Have you flown the XS yet?! The build looks like a real powerhouse and looks really good!

Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to fly it. I swapped the vtx with a TBS unify pro, which exploded even with a smoke stopper on, then decided to solder the pigtail to the lumenier vtx. What I didnt realize was that the unify screwed something on the pb, so im sitting here waiting for a new pb. Im almost tempted to try another unify on it, but I dont want to deal with that mess again. Hope to get it flying by next week.

Sad to hear that... A good idea is to check if the 5V BEC can handle the the supply current demanded by the Unify Pro, which BTW is around 600ma... Some cheaper BECs can only do 300ma-500ma, so...

I was just looking at this frame. I like the look of it. How do you like it?

I haven't flown it yet, but it is extremely well made. Just make sure when you mock it up, you do so with the camera mount plates in.
