It's just a 3d printed prototype yet, but I still wanted to share it!
It's going to be a 3" monster, based on a 16x16 stack (yes, I know the strongest one available is 12 amps, I'm waiting for a stronger one)
I calculated the weight to be around 200g with a 650mAh 4s lipo.

It features the runcam racer nano cam (thx runcam for sponsoring btw!)

12 amps should be enough for 1306 size motors, or are you going with something crazy?

I went with the racerstart 1306 motors. I recently cracked a shaft in one of them in a very hard crash, and now have the racerstar 1507's. 1104 would be too small, but I am a fan of my 1104 4000kv DYS motors on 4S spinning 2" props. I think you're looking in the 3600kv range for 1306 on 4S. The racerstar QCS props are good but have absolutely no low end bite. Good for smoothness but not for power (my 3" rig is pretty heavy)

I'd go for some Emax 1306

Btw since Bob Roogi is working on a superlight 3" too I'm kind of following his recommendations at the moment.
He suggests motors in the 10g range. He specifically mentioned 1404 and 1304.
But the EMAX 1306 is the the ball park too with quite exactly 10g.

Nice one! I'm also trying to design larger frames for a 12x 12 stack, The footprint is insane! Also, that canopy is gorgeous

Thank you 😁 Do you mean a 16x16 stack or is there really already a 12x12 stack? That would be crazy small!

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..
