This is the NEARLY ideal build on a rotorx switchback. It has everything it was originally spec'd for except i used the airblade superman motors since i could not source the RX 1404-3600kv v2 motors that i ideally wanted. I also added a GPS for rescue mode/finding it, and i just snagged an external current sensor i plan to install. If you have any questions about the build or setup please contact me!

nice clean build, got any vids? am curious about the pop, power and speed of those motors. starting a tomoquads shinka build and am considering 13xx/14xx motors instead of 1106.

fantastic. the 1404's only draw about 8a max each so its well within the rating. I wouldnt personally try to push it any harder though. cheers

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. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

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..
