Stretched Whoop

Because I've never seen a 1.9" stretched-X with ducted propeller guards, I decided to make one.
I used the Eyas SX-2 stretched-X frame with aluminium propeller guards I took of the Toad 88 frame. They're supposed to fit 2" props, but they don't.

The SX-2 frame has the camera well protected and high up, so you don't have the ducts in view. Without the prop guards it can be fitted with 2.3" props.
It's a strong frame with replaceable arms, also available in a 3" version with 3mm or 4mm arms and dirt cheap. They even have slits on the back which perfectly fit the HGLRC double LED and buzzer board.

Powered by Sunnysky 1106 - 8000kV's, on 2s it should be a serious whoop.
Somehow the motors don't work on Betaflight and although it arms, they won't spin. So working on that at the moment.
Maiden video will follow as soon as baby flies.

My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit.
