hi all,

this is my second build. huge upgrade from my old zmr250 with naze32 board. so decided i needed an upgrade.

i choose the supafly flipmode cause it looks awesome with the skin. and not to forget, feels much better buying a frame from steve supafly instead of some cheap china clones. big up for this guy, steve is always available for all your questions wich is awesome!!!

on to the build. frame is pretty straightforward, nice carbon and everything goes together pretty easy. i thought the stickers would be a pain in the ass, but that went easy as well. everythings well made and quality is superb.

for the components i went for the dalrc stack with the f7 flightcontroller and rocket 50A 4 in 1 esc. motors are emax rsII 2306 2600kv. will be flying this on 4s batteries

so the biggest problem will be fitting the dalrc stack in the frame. have to be creative to make it fit...

the 4 in 1 esc is turned 180° so the battery wires come out in the front where the gap in the top plate is. the stack doesnt fit with regular grommets. so i cut some off it and try to use every 0.1mm space. problem with the stack is that the tpu connectors from both boards and the metal heat shield take lots of unnecesary space. as it is now, the bottom components from the fc are touching the metal heat shield, and even then i have to press the top plate down to make it fit.

so what i did was cut some carbon from the middle X shaped sandwich plate so the the tpu connector from the esc sinks a bit lower, gaining 1mm. sandwich everything together nice and tight.

i really enjoyed this build and im happy with the end result.

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...
