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 !

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..
