Typical Rooster Build, no need to bore you with build details. ;-)

Found some cool 3D printed parts on Thingiverse. Type "Armattan Rooster" in the search and you can find all kinds of cool prints that you wont find on ebay or Amazon. Link:

  • GoPro Session protective bumper frame designed for Rooster (No straps required)

Maaaaaaaaaaan, that is some top quality builder porn sir. Top quality. Forgive me for asking, but how much does she weigh all up?

Sorry it took so long! Justgot my new scale! Without battery she weighs 533.0 grams!

How did you deal with the battery strap hitting the gyro on the kakute v2? Also does the tbs vtx overheat being on the bottom of the stack?

qwadkiller   Nov 17, 2018 

Its hard to see in the pics, I looped the strap back over the top of the center of the battery plate so theres no way for the strap to hit the soft mounted gyro. I have four drones with the Kakute and finding a way to make sure the battery strap dosn't touch it is a pain. BUT I love this controller!

The TBS VTX has not been an issue with overtheating. I run them at 200mw. I added spacers between the mounted TBS tx and the 4-in-1 to provide more airflow. Also, I mounted the TBS board directly flush to the frame contacting the carbon fiber. TBS said it would aid in cooling.

When attaching the capacitor to the battery line like that, is that a printed part, if so do you have a link?

It works great! Here is the link! I paid $19 for 11 pieces made from flexible TPU.

Haha, I know but after one dead session and second one with a case cracked, I wanted overkill protection!  Those damn trees!

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. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

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..
