3 Inch Skele7on "Toothpick style" frame

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 ;)

nice frame! carbon rods?
Yeah 1103 with biblade 3020 3" seems pretty good. Though probably don't want more than 8,000kv.
Careful what ESC you use though - i don't think the 5A ones have the headroom for them - I'm busy swapping out my burnt out BeecoreF4 for a HAKRC 10A/Super_s F4 combo.

hmmm i was gonna use those crazybee aio fc and esc and rx...hmmm im trying to keep it reallllyyy light but i guess 5a is not enough. also yeah hahaha carbon rods. Got it from a thing i saw in thingiverse but i felt like his design was flawed in several ways so i decided to make my own. Its Stiff for what it is but i garantee itll break if i used 3s. if i used 1104, do you think the 5a would be okay?? i guess kv will be 7500kv or less.

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"...

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..
