it was a flight controller that I thought was dead.. (lifted pad that my friend fixed) the motors had broken shafts so I couldn't use them on the build/props I was wanting. the camera was one taken from a broken whoop and the canopy was still broken..
it was like an abandoned parts build but it turned out to be my favorite and the best performing flyer I've had. the flight times weren't great never over 3 minutes... but it ripped... 2 inch and nimble and quick and very controllable. it's gone now I think the vtx or antenna or maybe i had my goggles on the wrong channel but I lost video then crashed then telemetry lost I guess the battery disconnected... I searched the area I think it's in but haven't found it yet.
it was super fun and exhilarating and it was the best thing ever for learning acro...

(no link for the motors anymore they were 10,000 kv 1103 crazepony motors from amazon.. (I had a 70% throttle curve limit)
not sure why the osd flashes but I was running the vtx/cam off of a 5v bec to save the fc from that work and I think I should have connected the ground from the vtx to the fc as well.. can't try it now unless I find it maybe...

I didn't notice any jello but I wouldn't recommend that camera i just don't like it and yes the whoop it was on before was jelloy... if I build this one again which I probably will. I'd change the camera..

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..
