even when cruising around at 35-40% throttle, it's already fast.
it makes my flying corner feel small.
you can get 5-6mins easy or 7mins if you're just cruising.
i like this build with hq3x3x3 more than gf2540
the videos look bad. that's because i'm using an old 40$ box goggles that nobody uses anymore.
i'm sure it'll look a lot better with your 700$ fatshark goggles

i have another build, kind of relate to this one. same build, but different motors and props.
basically, you just swap out motors and props.
63g 12a ( and up) esc 1402 gf2540 3s 550mah.
what you'll get ? a little bit slower than this one. but the control, throttle resolution, is much better.

61g dry, 98g with 3s 350mah, 3-4min ( 3s 450mah if you want more weight ) with gf2540
3s 550mah 650mah with hq3x3x3
betafpv 15a fc+esc
hglrc flame 1105 6000kv
tbs pro32 nano vtx, modula7 camera(chopped off vtx)
tweaky 120mm whoop frame, built for Line of Sight, very light, minimalist ( to get the frame, you just post messages on rcgroups, that's how they like to operate)

pid: is flyable, need more tuning.
props: gf2540 or hq3x3x3
R : 41 45 25
P: 45 50 27
Y: 40 100
tpa 2.5 breakpoint 1590

stupid eos2 camera looks so bad. we need a new eos2. small capacitor is needed if you want smooth video.
punchouts is usually about 50%. i usually don't fly fast.

4/8/19 update: i chopped vtx from modula7 camera and modified cam mount to fit. i can see a lot better now. it might be just mine. eos2 cam is the worst. i'll upload a video tomorrow.
4/9/19 update: the pictures show modula7 cam with vtx chopped off.
4/11/19 update: i tried hq3x3x3 3s 550mah. it feels good. using same pid as gf2540.
4/11/19 update: it was very windy. frame shake a lot. but i feel i need to record a dvr footage with these hq3x3x3 3s 650mah to show how it flies. i'll make another video on a better day. it flies really good for 6mins.


4/14/19 update: my old goggles can only record 3min at a time. it stops at 3min and starts again.

i just built this one :) i flew a few packs. a bit slower than "wild flower" but better control, throttle resolution. 63g dry, some random frame, iflight 16x16 stack, 1402 motors, gf2540, modula7 with vtx chopped off, 3s 550mah. camera mount ( 2 zip ties, camera foam-taped onto them) because i like modula7 cam a lot and only weighs 2g. i tried 3" props and didn't like it.

i didn't mean too. i turned around and there he was, in front of me. so the logic was to fly up. on the way down, i already knew where he was. but still on the hindsight, that was really stupid of me.

and another thing, i was using eos2 and i can't hardly see anything. today i just chopped off vtx from modula7 camera and use it. i can see a lot better now.

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..
