It seems every other build these days is a massive droner! There are good reasons for that, it's not just hype. It's a fantastic frame, easy to build, provides good protection and looks great.

It's especially easy if your FC of choice is HGLRC Zeus. It leaves you wondering if you have forgotten something because the build comes together so quickly.

Curious to try the new R9 mini. It's as tiny and costs just as much as the XM but it has telemetry and hopefully, even with less than optimal antenna placement, will give a good range.

Total weight without a battery is 97g

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...
