This build is a Floss 2.1 with additional aero parts I've designed. The aero parts are primarily for drag reduction and also serves as an impact structure. It is printed in PLA with 2 shells for good strength and tested to withstand at least 23KG without breaking. It currently reaches a max ground speed of 232KPH (144MPH), with a two-way peak average of 225.5KPH (140MPH). The aim of this project is to see how fast a race frame can go with just additional aero parts.

Spec D is an aero focused upgrade which adds a kamm tail and arm fairings. ESCs were changed to the beefier T-Motor 55A as the Tekko32 burned up. The motors were changed back to the Cobra 2207 2450kv as the Hyperlite 2207.5 2722kv were too amp hungry and making the battery way too hot. They are mounted in a pusher configuration to allow a cleaner thrust column.

Dry weight with no aero: 300g Aero parts: 70g AUW: 590g

Nice powerfull build
Have you test speed with lipo 6S ?

Thanks. Haven't tested with 6S, but I may do so when the aero is quite optimised.

I'm enjoying watching the progress! "They are mounted in a pusher configuration to allow a cleaner thrust column." My next project is also taking advantage of 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..

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...
