This is my budget Rotor Riot CL1 build that absolutely shreds without sacrificing durability.

The RCX motors are $3 cheaper per when you remove the warranty which is void the second you touch a soldering iron to the wires (making it completely useless) which drops $12 from the total cost here.
I got three of these Cicada AIO FC/ESC's for $30 each when they were on clearance which drops $37 from the total
I'm also only using one of the 2 Foxeer antennas which drops another $10
This brings the total cost of the build down to $231

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..
