I wanted to build a sub 200gr (without lipo) race quad.

this is my try. I lack a precision balance but it's somewhere between 170 and 190gr.

I used 14xx 5" Floss 2 arms.

I just maidened it, I need to find what is the best battery size.
here is the first DvR (it needs more tuning, and the lipo are new and still needs break-in) above the vineyard behind my house (sorry no track)

850mah 4S might be a good size/weight for that!! if you can find 1000 also. 1300 might be a bit heavy and make it feel slow.

Good luck! keep us posted!

850mah ARE great ! I'm currently testing those for 3 days. I had a crash today, the original screws for xnova are too shorts and one motor unscrewed (not sure of the word) during a flight. I'm gonna change them tomorrow for longer m2 screws. (it might add 1gr to the 309gr with 850).
1050 are ordered and should be delivered this week, so I might try it this week end. The DvR is on the computer, I just need to upload it !

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...
