This is the ultimate mid range micro flyer. With AirBlade Superman 1404 3850kV on 850mah 4S running biblade props, you're looking at 8 minutes cruising. The frame also allows for dual cam setup if you want to throw on the HD cam like Split Mini or Caddx Turtle, or even a GoPro Session. Check out the footage here

All of that and staying under 250g make it a great quad to take with you on hikes to capture that stunning HD footage.
I've played around with Gemfan 3025 and HQProp T3x3 and I think the HQProp are better. I get virtually no jello, and the props are way more durable.

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...
