I don't think you need XT30 with 080x motors. It's just extra weight. Unless you already have it on the battery.
I have to admit I got this frame. Have the motors had longer wires I would have built on it. I thought I could route the wires along the catbon. But they were too short and I just couldn't make myself build with the wires hanging in the air. That never lasts. Dmitry has since designed a new conversion frame with arms going straight to the center, diagonally.
Hovering at 10% throttle is simply amazing but these things are strange. I think KababFPV suggests limiting the throttle at 70% or 75% and based on the one I have built it's about right. It's just doing nothing above that limit.

With the XT30 battery and the KababFPV tune and a 70% throttle limit it is so much better. you are right about running the wires in the air.. my most recent crash ripped the wires off the motor side :(

Sorry about the crash. Strangely, KababFPV's tune didn't work for me at all. It was SOOO hyperactive. I am almost on the default PIDs that are far off his tune.

oOooOO interesting how the fc is at the bottom. Does that give any benefit?

Not really just that I couldn't get the motor wires to reach any other way

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...
