I built a twin of my new favorite frame, the Floss 2.1. I'm using Kevlar arms on the front, standard on the backs. I also came up with an interesting way of mounting two 470uf caps on the back in a V using wafl's cap caps. Inspired by catching a big a$$ dragon fly in that spot the other day while practicing.

They are white "thin" tinys leds in a TPU case to make them yellow. Yellow is a hard color to reproduce so the TPU with white led works best.

As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit.

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..
