Just finished the build today. Will fly tomorrow and see what there is to offer here. Interesting design I must admit. The full build with battery strap minus battery comes in at 295 grams. Really happy with that weight. Should perform well, will see. Plan to add the R9mm later. Thanks for looking at my build.

It's a pretty cool concept, but Im a bit afraid about what happens if theres a head on impact with a pole or a tree. If this impact results with a broken vertical plates and a strut bar, then its quite annoying and possibly expensive to repair.
Also, your build is too heavy considering those motors weight less than 30g. Probably it's the TPU canopy what makes it heavy? Should be around 265g with those motors.
Give some feedback about its handling and efficiency please.

I did not build this to race even though this is intention of the frame. It was built to my flying style which is ripping hard. This build comes in right at 295 grams and when the throttle is applied it literally leaps in the air. Which is exactly what I wanted. This build is highly responsive to stick inputs. I would say the way the rear arms are tucked in and up from the front motors holds most of the credit. It is definitely breathtaking to fly the Raging Droner. if you race this is what you want trust me. On 4s it is very efficient and handling is unbelievable.

What a cool frame, half smooth operator, half Murica'. Nice work with the canopy/motor color coordination

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.

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..
