Squirt V2

This is my first complete build. I wanted a lightweight cinematic drone for carrying an Osmo Pocket.

I designed a custom antenna mount for the micro AXII and Immortal-T V2.
I also designed a custom battery strap mount for the bottom plate, which uses the 30.5x30.5 holes and fits over the stack bolt heads in the 20x20 holes.

The hardest part of this build was getting my Wanhao Duplicator 6 printer to TPU reliably. The key for me was increasing the nozzle temperature to 228C in order to prevent clogs and filament binding.

In order to fit the TBS Pro32 Nano in the WhitenoiseFPV board, I had to file the hole in the board slightly (less than 0.5 mm).

Quad: 252.1g
Battery: 104g
Osmo pocket: 116g
AUW: 472.1g

My only flights so far have been hovering around inside my apartment, but I'm getting 6 minute flight times.

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..
