This is my first leap in to true long range FPV. I decided on the gorgeous Project 399 Super G Plus as the platform. Spent lots of time designing/printing 3d parts to hold the camera, r9M antenna, GPS module, and VTX/Antenna. I plan to upload those parts to Thingiverse (link to be added soon). Still working on the PID tune--will post those final numbers when I get them done. Enjoy!

(special thanks to Minichado for sending me his PIDs as a starting point)

Looks great! I've gotten close to 20 minutes of flight time on a 5200 4s fwiw.

Beautiful and very clean build! Two Questions?

What's the flight time with 1800mah battery pack?
What product did you use to enclose the wires from the motors?

Thanks for the kind words. I havent yet had a chance to really test flight times. I am still getting PIDs dialed in. I'll try to leave an update later.

The wires are covered by standard braided cable sleeving - can be purchased on Amazon.

The antenna is designed for the Frsky R9MM mini receiver. You slide the two antenna leads into a small hole in the middle of the mount, and then attach the plastic tubing on either side. Works amazingly well--essentially creates an Immortal T type antenna that is flexibly mounted on a standoff (spaced away from carbon).

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...
