This is a design exercise for me to create a lightweight long range touring rig. Lightweight is quieter and that meant replacing the standard GoPro camera with a Runcam Split 2 saved a lot of weight and still allows for HD footage on covert missions. Employing seven inch props seem to be a good compromise between performance and endurance and lend a cartoonish proportion of pod to prop. The lightest, flimsiest 7 inch frame I could find would have to make do with this concept. I took one of my Stealth canopies that didn't look right on a Proton race quad and fit it up to the Sloss' 7 frame. The canopy fit was almost perfect! A little modification to refine the mounting position, fix the FPV/HD camera angle to 30 degrees and creation of the first ever pierced antenna canopy design to accomodate the FrSky R9 long range telemetry receiver produce a stunning revolutionary addition to the world of long range. Welcome to FPV Touring! See www.milehigh3D.com if you are interesting in purchasing a custom canopy for your long range or race quad.

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...
