FPV 3inch custom design.

Very simple build. One single board (OMNIBUSF4 AIO OSD) and a single camera+VTX (Eachine TX05). Main perfo are:

  • AUW 185g with 650mAh, 75C Tattu. Empty Weight133g
  • Custom frame 3D Printed in ColorFabb XT CF20. 20% Fill
  • Avrg flight time 7 min (fast fpv). Used battery 535mA

It flies very well: quick and stable. Quite similar to Diatone Rabbit 349 , but longer flight time.

Very cool! How long did it take to print? Im gonna try and build something like this aswell in a couple of months :D

about 4h. CF printing is very slow

Looks really nice! How does the ColorFabb hold up in crashes?

Not broken yet (I´ve flown many batteries already with a lot of crashes). The image above showing a crash was with PLA material much more fragile.
This material has a hight stregth (79MPa) and its very resilient. After printing you can apply a "post curing" for gaining 30% of strength and stiffness with same mass.
It´s a bit difficult to print and hot-end eating due the Carbon Fiber filaments...but you get a nice result!
I´m very proud of this machine.

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..
