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.

Would love to see video of this beast running with the GoPro!

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.

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...
