Tired of propwash? Try this build.
Small, fast, with LED and cheap.

  • Modified a 3DPOWER frame to fit in the FC/ESC without standoffs
  • Cut out the "center" part of the old trashcan frame as battery holder
  • Cut the sides of the trashcan LED board and cram it under the hood
  • Cut the bottom half of the camera protection (props come very near it).
  • (while you are at it, upgrade to TX30)
  • Sandwitch everything together with M2 Bolts and nuts: From bottom: Battery tray, Carbon frame, FC/ESC, VTX, hood.

Enjoy!

I think the reason for jello is the canopy, not the frame.
It definitely will not get worse with the carbon frame :)

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..
