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.

Thanks. Not too light. Didn't measure it, but 85 grams of carbon (per CAD model) and I'd guess 100 grams with screws and standoffs.

100g is actually pretty good for a vertical design! Top and bottom + arms are two identical plates rotated by 180° right? really cool idea!

Yep, 180d. Those plates were most of the cost, so unfortunately not an idea I'd do again.

Vertical arm frames are tough to get right! Nice custom work man. Looks like a tough beast.

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.

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..
