Yet another budget Hyperlite Floss build. Was targeting maximum performance under $200, and achieved it. This includes a lot of extra nice-to-have fancy bits as well, including an 8-LED panel, and space for 6" propellers.

This is my new standard build. I would not have expected to build something that looks or flies this nice for under $185, but pulled it off.

The variation of this I want to make next is going to be a 1700KV variant of this identical build, which will enable 6S on 5" or running 6" props on 5S. The RCX Motors are really excellent performers, with supplemental capacitors the F4V5 FC/OSD/VTX performs really solidly, and the ZMR ESC is a performance value to be sure - just be mindful when you wire that up, as the wire colors aren't intuitive.

Additionally with BLHeli_32 it supports the DSHOT1200 motor protocol and custom startup music. This also..
