Autumn is coming, so it's time to build waterproof freestyle drone. Used silicone coating to cover all electronics and make it waterproof. Had to disassemble camera to coat its board. F2 Mito frame is cheap, but very good quality and looks great. It has not alot of space for components, so i chose TBS Unify Pro v3 vtx to fit in this frame with other electronics.

Nice and clean job, love it!
Got the exact same frame while having similar issues regarding the lack of space.

Would love to know how do you mount the battery (top / bottom) and how do you avoid the leash from touching the electronics.

Thanks!

I mount batteries on bottom, there is enough space between bottom plate and esc for battery strap....

Hey, very nice build ;)
What is the flight time and on which battery?
How much space is there for fc, etc. from top plate to bottom plate/arm...?

There are not much space in this frame - from top to bottom is 2 cm height for electronics

I usually use Tattu R-Line 1550mAh 4s 95c Lipos. Flight time is about 3-4 minutes aggressive freestyle flying.

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...
