thats an awesome build! if i may, how did you wire the hellgate to the fc? i have the same fc and buzzer but i cant get it to work other than just a constant single beep. i currently have it as bz- to bz-, bz+ to bz+, gnd to g pad next to led.

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..
