Naga 3 - the smollest 3" quad

Originally designed as a 2.5" with propguards, I realised that without them 3" props would just fit with a couple of mm clearance from each other and the stack. Diagonal motor to motor distance is 110mm, making this just about as small as you can make a 3" build without vertically staggering the motors - actual distance between motor centres on the short edges is just 3 1/16"!

Only given it a quick test flight but it feels very nimble and surprisingly quick!

Holy hecc so seccy. Are you selling the frame or releasing files?

Just weighed it, 124g with a 450mah 3s pack. Thinking of picking up some 750mah to try too, should be enough to see me through 2 minute heats :)

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..
