7" Long Range, build out. Focusing on INAV for navigation, being design with safe longer range flying with better self guidance.

The motor/ESC combo is just to get it into the air. The little 2206 motors are woefully overpropped and any heavy throttle jumps their amp draw through the ceiling. Only able to order 2 of the T80-Pro, 1900's so far. Also have to order the ESC's. Eventually, will get it equipped in a way I would feel better about long range flying with it.

Also, looking for another choice in 7" props. The HQ's are well balanced...but I had one split at the hub while out flying causing the loss of a blade. The F7 is a fast processor...but not that fast! Luckily it was a soft landing in some shrubbery that kept the damage minimal.

Looks good!
Have you concidered the dal 7056 tri blade props? Or are they an overkill for the 2400kv's? I'm currently building my 7" and have the karearea toa 1600 kv 2306's to it. I have the dal props already, so at least I'll be testing it.

I have not really looked in to props except to get it airborne. The 2206 motors are temporary as I save up for the T80 Pro 1900's.

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...
