Trying something different today. 6" 6s HD cruiser. Not necessarily going for looooong range here, just something I can cruise around with at cool spots. So went with the Raggio Lungo frame as it had 6/7" prop flexibility plus some nice 3D printed mounts Larry's already made up.

Build was easy, this thing has plenty of room for everything. Went with separate ESCs to make sure the stack would fit but I think it's do-able with a 4in1 ESC now. Also check out those Demon 2207 1750kv motors. A bit more Kv than I wanted but they're sold by a local and brand new to market so I wanted to support them.

Frame edges are painted in my signature white trim. White paint pen covered with a thin layer of superglue. Protects the edges AND looks awesome.

So far so good, smooth and more power than I probably need on a cruiser. I like the big bearings in them, should be reliable although I don't plan on wrecking them into gates.

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...
