I didn't install a cap on the xrotor esc. Also 14 awg wire was used on the xt60 cable. Since this is a 4S build. I had problems with the new FL1 firmware and went back to "FL1_Revolt_1.2.46.bin".

Opened blheli32 and changed PMW freqency to 48hz (didn't reverse motor direction in blheli32)
I ran motor setup in FL1 to spin the motors instead of using blheli32
Reran the fc setup again and changed to racing, removing freestyle help with smooth stick inputs.
Used skitzos pids and tpa shown in wild willys quopa video (and in pictures)
Used low filtering instead of medium that was shown in said video (since predictive only works on 32hz)
Changed CG Adjustment from 95 to 90
Lowered kD limit from 0.99 to 0.35
Lowered kI limit from 0.45 to 0.15
Tried to changed deadband to 0.015 (but when it saved, it changes to 0.01)
Scroll down to D filtering and find the kD Filtering and change from 70 to 65
Choosed skitzo rates
Click save
Charge up, pack up, set up, fly

Improve Later
Run blackbox and set notch filters.

The only thing I did was compile this into one place. I take no credit for this.

Whats up man, I built the exact same set up. only difference is I did not change anything in blheli32 (PWM). Everything calibrated fine without props and all of my solder joints and screws were on point. Once i put the props on, I had one motor stuttering so swapped leads with another motor, same thing with the new motor on that same esc output. checked continuity on the esc and it seems to have a short on only one phase of one motor. how often are escs faulty?

Sorry to hear about the troubles, I would say pretty low. I only have two of these 4in1's, and both fly outstanding. This is probably irrelevant, but did you leave the little sticker on the bottom of the esc? Also, I put charpu tape over the screws/press nuts where the esc lays.

lmao yeah the bar code sticker? yeah its still on and the air gap is pretty big so i dont think it shorted but thhat is a good idea. They should be sending me a replacement. Also, you flashed your FC with the "FL1_Revolt_1.2.46.bin" that should cover the FC and ESC when using FL1 to do the calibrations and everything right?

By far one of the most exspesive builds i've seen here as a freestyle, got ant fight videos? Looks great.

Ya, that's how you know it's not junk. I'm still waiting for the Sktizo FC, if you would take the effort and read what i've posted.

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...
