I have been looking for a easy to maintance tough frame to use for my goto rigs. I hope this frame is it , I have not been able to test it yet becasue of rain but as soon as I do I will update the build with some flight footage. At this point I have no idea how many 5" quads I have built and rebuilt be I can say this is one of the easiest frames to work on I have come across especially with the BRIAN3D kit. This frame looks like a lot of the "alien" style or QAV style frame but the devil is in the details. Little things like 8 standoffs instead of 6, extra 20x20 mounting holes in the back and the ability to support more then one size camera. Ohh and its also sitting on 23mm standoffs instead of 30mm. Pleanty of vertical room even on 23mm as you can see you could easily push it to 20mm but you would need to use a micro cam for sure.

Not sure yet we have had a lot of rain here. Hopefully this weekend. I'm coming from an xLabs Steez which has almost identical geometery and weight so I expect them to feel simialr. The CL1 is actually 10g lighter which was a surprise given the chunky arms of the Cl1. Have you crashed yours much?

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...
