I lost my beloved Featherlight Falcon project in a marsh. I was never able to locate it, likely because it was all black. As cool as that looks, I won't make that mistake with this one.

Looks great!! A unique AND useful pod design. Are the props out of view with the camera that far forward??

Thanks! Session and Split Mini FPV feed are prop free, but there are props just barely in view in the split footage. You can see examples of all three in the videos above. The Split HD footage is the stuff with the dark vignette of tpu around the outside.

Thanks! It's my favorite thing I have made for quads. I want to do more with it. There's really benefits to the shape and a lot more potential.

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...
