The one quad thats been missing from my fleet has been a 6'' , and so I picked the Diatone 2018 GT to fill that gap. I really like the 6mm interchangeable arms and flip up hood. Im sure that will come in handy down the line.

I took her out last weekend and flew a few packs and I have to say that I was really inpressed. I love how nimble this stretch X flies and still be able to just cruise around at speed. I may build the mini-me 3'' version next. I hear those little SunnySky 1408's rock.

Pimp, they are the 2480 kv and I got between 3 and 3.5min on the HQ's the few times I run them. .. I have a set of 6'' Butter Cutters I need to dig up and try.

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...
