Serge from PiroflipRC personally gave me this frame backin the Fall of 2016 before they offically went on sale and this was why this story (and the way it all turned out) was so important to me . My bouncing baby Hyperlite was born in 2016 and went MIA in January of 2018 never to be found after over a week of searching.... Until this morning when it was stumbled upon by accident after almost 6 months. I did a thorough cleaning and inspection and she flew this evening again. It endured freezing temps below 20 degrees, winter rains , and early spring heat into the 100's. I didn't have to change or replace anything other than the vtx antenna. A couple motors are a bit noisy when spun by hand but it flew great. The quad was laying upside down under an orange tree all this time. the one photo shows it when it was found this morning and the other was after the cleanup. I missed this little sucker. Picture are of when it was found (Today) after it was cleaned up and flown, and when it was origionally born.

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...
