Hats off to Armattan Pro. for re-sending this thing twice at no extra cost to me. (post office failed to notify me 2x)

Just a oneoff design, playing around with the concept of a vertical+horizontal arm members.

16mm stack space, which is enough these days for stacks like this, but no, I just transplanted some old parts and had to fit the VTX on top.

Like the re-purposed Emax foam on the arms? ...need to 3d print some.

Anyway, not the prettiest thing but Blackbox logs look amazingly vibe-free and it flies good.

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...
