This is a build inspired by the toothpick.The most trouble I think we are going to have from these builds are vibrations. I found that using a rubber garment on the bottom then a standoff then the rubber garment that is attached to the fc works great. I also used tpu 1103 softmounts for the motors. This quad flies amazing on stock pids however I did raise D gain to 35. When we are using these 65mm props it is very important to get the prop to sit as tight as possible on the shaft these will reduce vibrations as well. With the betafpv 1103 motors I found that a drill bit of 1.45mm works great. They are so many of these frames right now that I have been buying a few here and there to tryout. I really see these builds growing and getting better has time goes on.

You could use the Betafpv version with no reciever and hook up a xm+.

probably the best way to go but for me the built in spi receivers is fine for close proximity acro.

If I decide to go with a separate receiver it will probably be a R9MM. But there's something cool about having as much stuff on that one board as possible... easier too.

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...
