This is my second adventure in trying to make a dual-sport rig for large propellers, a racer that can still efficiently fly long range and freestyle well.
For now, the primarily payload is the CADDX Turtle FPV/HD camera, though I have a GoPro Session mount for it as well.
Heart of this build is the same Furibee F4 V5 and ZMR 30A 4-in-1 ESC electronics, paired with RCX H2208 motors. Really hard to beat the price of this core setup. The smoothness and efficiency of these motors is exceptional, able to run race pace on 4S.
The biggest aesthetic improvement is definitely the CL Racing LED-Wire - these look exceptional, and are a great value... just need to add a Tiny's LED on top for full visibility.
Propellers will range from the Gemfan 6042 Flash props (Biblade and Triblade), 5149F Race props, and DAL T5046C V2 Cyclones.

EDIT:
This particular build has been reborn into a Floss2.1 BeastMode clone, with the Caddx Turtle being transplanted to a 7" Floss2.1 Sharkitecture build

Got any video to post?

None yet - I converted that build into a clone of my Floss-Unicorn and went racing with it (using a smaller camera).
I have a new canopy for that camera, and it'll be built onto my 7" setup... then I'll have video.

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.

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..
