I wanted to build a 3" Jappy with a full-sized flight controller as it has a surprising amount of room under the hood.

It's never going to have the agility of say a Catalyst Superlight, but it's a blast to fly and pretty well indestructable

My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

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.
