Here is my last build...and perhaps the coolest one!!! Look at that heatsink !!!! Gorgeous no?
It was quite challenging to put all this stuff in so tiny space! I had to enhance the cage with countersunk washer. All fit perfectly now....except for the capacitor: no place for it. So i try to fly without. If th noise is too high..i will put this capacitor somewhere.

I looks awesome, The heatsink is to its side, you need there to be maximum air flow threw the fins. turn it 90 degrees to its side

Looks great!! what kv did you go with on the motors? I'm using the same Led's and the 2300kv Sunny's on the build I'm finishing up now.

Just the motors and the CLracing LED's... I've always been a fan of SunnySky motors

ok so i made the maiden....this quad is my best one!! it flies so smoothly with BF 3.5.... the PID tuning was quit simple (increase some D): no propwash...very locked! Video is coming..... But, the KV of the motors are a bit too low! I crashed 2 times after diving because of the lack of power . It's a bit difficult for me because all my other quad are 2650-2700 KV.... so perhaps it's my fault : I put throttle too late I think. I will try in 5S ;-)

I'll be taking my SS 2300kv's out first thing in the morning... I'll let you know how they do on 6'' props.

I love the heat sink! It looks like it's got red hair. Great work as usual, but you might want to work on your soldering ;) You didn't get enough solder on those pads.

i too was about to say something about that. i think removing thr plastic and the AKK sticker will be more effective in cooling the vtx chip.

The heatsink is more for the look than for heat dissipation !!!! No heat problem with AKK even at 1200 mW..... and all my quads use the VTX_AUTOLOWER function in CLI: the power is decrease to 25 mW when the quad is disarmed

I didn't know about that feature, very handy!

Great looking build! How did you mount the VTX?

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...
