Shendrones 3D Shrieker

Shendrones at it again with this 3" 3D Shrieker. Super fancy ninja star shaped carbon plate, with camera mount, tail, and motor arm guards 3D printed in TPU directly onto the frame. When I saw it I had to build one.

This frame does not normally carry a GoPro (evidence of this is Andy telling me he thought the pic was Photoshop.) But as soon as I finished the build, and test hovered, it was so light, that I had to design one to try out. She flies amazing on 5S and can definitely handle the weight of the 850mah RotorX pack, but really shines on the smaller 450mah.

Printed with Purple Ninjaflex, if I did it all again, I would use Semi-Flex or something a bit more rigid only because at spots I get a bit of jello in the FPV feed. I put a small foam block under the camera and it removed almost all of it. This jello does not translate to my GoPro mount, footage on that is extremely smooth and solid. So it seems like the FPV mount (printed from Ninjaflex) is just a bit too rubbery by itself.

All in all very pleased with this little ripper!

what do you mean printed ON the frame???wtf how, do you pause the build and place the carbon on it?

Check out Andy Shen's writeup on it. Just pause the printer at the appropriate height like 4mm, then insert the carbon, click resume.
I did hold it down with a pair of tweezers for the first layer or so, just to make sure the head could pass over unobstructed.

Maidened it a few months back


Made a few adjustments since this, and updated to Betaflight 3.5. Added a bit of a throttle boost because the GoPro adds a chunk of weight.

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..
