I realize this is technically a race frame but I'll being using it for freesytle and just general flying so weight is not a concern.

The DAL Engine looks cool but is normally buried under the flight controller where it can't be seen. Part of the reason I chose this frame is that I wanted to do a build with the DAL Engine mounted above the flight controller, with the narrow top plate the Engine is easier to see. I've heard great things about this frame and RC crazed has always been superb with prices and service so it was a no brainer.

I had a new BetaFlight F4 flight controller sitting around so I used it along with some BrotherHobby EngineerX 2307-2700kv motors. I haven't seen many quads with these motors so I bought some for this build. They're a bit heavy but are amazing.

This was not an easy build with everything being wired between the ESC and flight controller. There's also an Eachine VTX03 video transmitter stuck between the ESC and FC with the LemonRx diversity satellite mounted to the bottom of the top plate behind the camera.

I designed and printed the TPU parts but I am still undecided on using the fin. The camera mount is basically the same as the stock one but it moves thecamera forward 2mm, I needed that little bit of space. It took a few adjustments and prints to get the VTx antenna and antenna tube mount finalized but I'm happy with it now.

The quad flies great and has tons of power, especially with 5S. The battery gets a little warm but the motors are cool.
