I had the Asgard32 going spare after giving up on it in a Flowride on account of it being just too big to fit properly & my previous F1 build was feeling a bit outdated with a F3 flight controller & no OSD... so it seemed like a logical upgrade/rebuild path! With the single board stack I dropped it onto 20mm standoffs (it might even have been possible to use 15mm, the FPV camera is actually the bottleneck). One side effect of the shorter standoffs was the requirement to boost the HD cam mount to clear the props, so I printed a riser in the super soft FlexiSMART to sit beneath the rigid.ink flexible PLA seat.

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..
