I designed, printed and built a 3" version of my Skele7on frame.
Flies like a beast with crazy 5 minute flight times :)

I've since changed the camera to an AKK A5 as you can see in the video the Mobula camera was on its way out...

hey so i have a similar project and im wondering if 1103 is enough for bi-blade 3" because i rarely see people do that. Any thoughts? also here is my take on a similar frame to yours. Also partially 3d printed ;)

My experience shows 5A ESCs are not enough!
I can thoroughly recommend the iflight success 16x16 stack though - you can get an idea how well is works here:

i havent released them yet ;-) but wait for a while and im just finishing up the sizes. can someone tell me whats the mounting hole pattern/size of these whoop boards, my current design is 25.4x25.4 mounting pattern

heres an update. I had to ask for the creator of this canopy if i can change it to fit my frame perfectly.

Youre the first person ive seen with any success on that flight controller. Ive burnt out 2 personally on the first flight for each. The QC seems to be off big time.

I blame you. literally smoked it on the next flight I took 😥

Will replace it with a Crazybee.

Man I thought you were one of the lucky ones. They seemed liked theyd have so much promise too lol. HAKRC has a 10a 16x16 stack that only cost 20 bucks. Its a good replacement or there is also the HBS-F405 is worth looking into also both are cheaper than the Crazybee.

Yeah. I do like the HAKRC - already have a 16x16 build / design.


I should update it to take the Mobula camera pod and grow it to 3"...

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
