This is my second medium/long range build. What sold me on this frame was the look of the thing. Sexy! The build was very straight forward and things went together nicely. Once assembled, configuration went smoothly with no hiccups. EVERYTHING worked from the jump. That was a first for me.

This ship flys extremely well with the F7 FC and Betaflight 3.3.3. It has a ton of speed with the 4s batteries! The Avan props make some weird noises at times, but they fly like they are on rails. I would highly recommend this ship to anyone looking for a medium/long range and wants a great build/flight experience.

Thanks to those who posted their Raggio builds here. They inspired and helped with this build for sure.

Peace and Happy Flying!!

Sorry for the long delay. I crashed this bird a few weeks after posting the build. I ended up replacing 3 of the four motors (one bent shaft and two felt gritty when turning) after the crash as well as a bottom plate, two arms, and two top joiners. The Raggio Lungo is back up and flying now and the motors are holding up well so far. I have maybe 7 packs flown so far.

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...
