This thing flies nicely, and looks awesome. I will say I've heard the xing motors are better, so I'll update this when I try them. The ecos do look really nice though.

If you're wondering, the switch on the side is for the buzzer, if I'm not flying far I don't bother enabling it.

I will be adding a flight video within a week or two.

If you have any questions comment down below.

How's that stack treating you on 6S? I've heard some concerns about running it on 6S packs but I haven't had any issues with mine.

Thanks for the feedback! I don't have any OSD flicker on mine. It seems perfect actually. Just hope it holds up to 6S over the long run.

Hm, yeah at like over 50% throttlemine just dissapears. Do you have anything besides the cap it came with on yours? I might add another.

Whiffles   4 hours ago 

Nope, just used the cap that it came with and I even had to run it on some wires because I didn't have space for it directly behind the FC.

Do you get the corners in view when using the Falkor Mini 1.8mm lens?

JasonFPV0   5 days ago 

I actually swapped the lens for a 2.1mm, and I think the frame is still in view. I'll upload a DVR picture tomarrow if I have time.

I added a DVR screenshot from a 2.1mm lens.

Whats up with the go pro mount lol? looks funky

JasonFPV0   5 days ago 

Not sure if you're reffering to the actual shape or the sorta messy print, but I like that shape because it protects the gopro more. Its sorta messy looking because I had bad print settings and had to touch it up with a soldering iron. It broke in a crash the day after I took these pictures, and the next one I printed looked much better. I'll add some more pictures soon. You can also check out the mount model on the thingiverse link.

EDIT: Oh lol yeah I just realised how weird those touch ups did look. I need to add more pictures.

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..
