It is quite heavy frame for a three inch but the important thing was to make a very resistant quad (4mm bottom plate) . Fortunately the motors are really powerful.
It's my first three inches and I'm really surprised by the airflow. I take a lot of fun in freestyle.
max thrust 2320 g, 3BR motors 1408 3600kv
287g with cnhl 4s 650mah
standard camera
Autonomy 3 mn in freestyle condition with cnhl 4s 650 mah.
Around 5 mn with tattu 3s 850 mah.

hello I intend to build the same drone as you did
would you mind sharing your betaflight tuning ? PID for instance Thank you

stock pid and feed forward set to 60 and the drone fly quite good in 3S. I did not have the time but I plan in the future settings with the blackbox

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...
