So, it's cold outside. Which, for me, means it's time to build some quads. I know, I know... that's a little backwards. Shouldn't I build during the summer when I can fly them?? Yes, I should, but I'm busy in the summer. Now that its winter it gets dark super early and, as I mentioned earlier, it's freaking cold outside - which means, time to spend too much money and build a bunch of quads I won't be able to fly until Spring...

Another solid design from Adam "HyphPV" Kobitz, the Wobblegong is a super light frame he designed for Jawz. I picked up a couple of these frames to build up and test with various motor combinations: Pyroflip's Hyperlites in 2205.5 and 2207.5, both in 1722kv. After have completed some testing, i really prefer the 2207.5 1722kv motors on 6S spinning Gemfan Hurricanes/Whiskey (5149.9).

UPDATE 12/19 - whipped up an AXii and RX antenna holder, as well as a GoPro Session couch (not that anyone still has a WORKING SESSION)... I'll add links to the files as misc

This is the second Spedix GS40 I've used on a build. No complaints at all, other than the price. 😀 I'd rather pay a bit more and have no complaints than save $15 and have a series of issues. As far as the camera... the jury is still out...

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..
