I wanted to build a lightweight 2S 2.5" HD freestyle copter.

It started off with 0802 motors. It was ok, but i wanted a bit more oomph so I added a 1103 version which I do prefer.

My frame is designed to be printed in polycarbonate - in which it's indestructible. However I know that printing in PC is beyond the reach of many - so I've started adding slightly modified versions of my frames that are sturdier to be printed in nylon-cf and possibly ABS ,(I've tested nylon-cf and it's great! I don't print in ABS, but I'm hoping it's still good). I've not yet got around to adding a sturdier version of this frame - if anyone is interested let me know and I'll get off my backside and finalise and upload it.

Nice! Thanks a lot! I want to print it in PolyMax PLA that's very strong for a PLA.

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...
