You think your racer is cool looking? Good for you.
You've got an efficient long range 5" setup? Cute.
You don't think 2300kv can be fast? Think again.

Facetiousness aside, I know this build log sucks, it needs more pictures, and to be properly documented. With that said, oh my dear lord is this good. I won't be giving out many details of this little beastie.... I haven't... asked the designer of the prototype, per se, but I'm sure he'll be alright with it... probably. Who knows!

Aaaaanywho, have a looksie at this youtube compressed DVR and keep in mind this is the maiden voyage of the ship, and the lipo is only 4s 1300mah, flying for six minutes.

PS: The frame is not strictly the ARX R as listed, but is a working prototype.

A slight update to thr log. The frame which is strictly the ARX-R V2 is now available on go check it out if you want one. This frame is truly an experience to build.

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..
