So this is by far the best 3'' quadcopter I've ever flown... BY FAR.

It all started when a similar setup on a lizard 180 frame on 4'' props started to show its weak points. The whole frame felt like an air brake and I didn't like the mounting options available, not to mention it was a frame from more or less the stone age.

That's when a friend of mine announced his new line if frames and he said he was doing a 3'' one and knowing how big of a micro fan I am he sent me one for testing. I couldn't be more happy with it. It withstands crashes like a champ, is ultra light coming in at about 240 grams with a 4s 850mah, has super thin yet strong arms and makes us admire its sleek design.

The new vtx is amazing and I finally switched to taranis so I have 0 range issues.

Also the 3040 v1s props are the best 3'' I've tried without a doubt: they're super smooth, fast and controllable. They also can take a beating (I have not change the props yet and they're only a bit scratched)

thanks for reading :)

By the way red makes it faster so yeah

Mine works awesome. Haven't heard too many complaints about the fx3 specifically but yeah, crystal clear without capacitators or lc filters.

maybe not because of the 4300kv motors in such a light and skinny frame. Put some 3600kv ane perfect 1st

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...
