im building a flosstyle as well. how do you like the antenna holder? does the floss 2 standoff spacing match the flosstyle?

It works well. I think they make holders specifically for the FlosStyle now, so the spacing may be different. I bought this before those were available.

Hows the durability of that frame?

Very good. I crashed it into tree branches and the ground, and no damage to frame. None of these were full speed crashes though so YMMV.

how do the motors perform one this build

deadmoo   May 07, 2018 

It is a little sketchy recovering from a dive compared to other prop/motor combinations I have tried. Motors are good quality though.

so would you suggest going lower kv for more torque

deadmoo   May 07, 2018 

I am no expert. But I think it would help. Using AMAXinno 2305 2350kv in another build and I like the feel of that motor better. I am using different props too though. I might be able to improve things with a different pitch prop.

Is there a way to get customizxed 3d parts, besides going to a friend or owning one yourself? I've been wanting to get this frame, but I would need 3d printed fpv antenna mount like yours

deadmoo   May 01, 2018 

Antenna mount is in part list. I ordered it from Brain3D.

Also, I just learned from latest KababFPV video about the frame that there are holes at the back of where the gopro mount is for forever tubes to be inserted for receiver antennas.

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
