New 3" Micro Quad build with some lighter parts than the heavier 14xx and 15xx setups. Flies amazing on a stock butterflight tune, but there is still some propwash that could be tuned out. I really like this TomoQuads frame. Very simple design, bears some similarities to something like the Hyperlite Tooth Fairy. The Kamikaze comes with some 3D printed parts which are very nice and the carbon seems top notch. These 1304 RCX motors seem solid, but they are getting warm on 4S with these 3" props. Not sure if I can do anything about that or not, but I'm really enjoying the way it flies right now. Easily my best flying micro to date. Need some better spaces to fly this guy in besides my yard and neighborhood!

I really like the Monster Micro Pro, but my ultimate goal with this build is to try to squeeze in a runcam split mini. Will likely be updating this build and page as I go.

great build! I think these motors perform great even on 3s, if you still want to run 4s you could limit your max throttle to say 85-90% to reduce the heat a little

Good call I was actually thinking about that! I actually don't have any 3S batteries yet, but I'd like to try on 3S as well as the reduced max throttle thing too. I think I can just do that on my radio....

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...
