iFlight XL7 - Long Range 7"

So far my main builds are 3" and 5". So have decided to skip 6" and jumped straight to a 7" build.
The iFlight frames looks like a good switchable arms frame and it's massive and strong for the purpose.
For Motors was waiting quite a long time for Brother Hobby 2507 release. 1850Kv, low, but probably not low enough to get a high efficient setup.
I tried several props, the Tarot from BG are a crap! easily break even by hand. Latest video with Gemfan Flash 7042 getting 12 minutes of great cruise using Dinogy 2x1300mah 4S 80C. Pretty good time.

This is such an awesome build. o you need any special programming on bf or any specific equipment to run that double xt60 - double battery or does it kind of just work itself out?

What's the flight time like? Interested to see what that monster of a battery array provides

i heard the gemfan 7042 don't fit on the xl7 v2 frame. Have you had any issues?

Quadxl   Aug 29, 2018 

I will let you know soon.

cool - what version of BF/BuF are you running? and what do your PID's look like?

Quadxl   Jun 06, 2018 

BF 3.2.5, all stock PIDs.

I'm finishing up my iFlight Xl7 build and I can't find any GoPro mounts or GPS mounts that come close to yours. Can you post the STL please?

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
