This is my own frame/canopy design, cf was cut by Armattan Productions, tpu is sainsmart.

The frame is a slightly stretched X 230mm, arms are 6x10mm, base plate is 6mm.

I don't like the random consequences of arm breaks, so on this design the arm bolts are the weak point, one of the two 12.9 tensile bolts generally breaks and the arm is designed to swing round harmlessly without pulling on the motor wires or esc pads.

Could save 10g by using 5mm cf and at least 10g on the tpu, but I am more interested in durability than weight these days.

Maiden with betaflight 402, I am glad I upgraded, it flys real nice.

65°, a bit much maybe.

A fixed angle has been good for durability (can't remember the last time I broke a camera).

But if I want a different angle I have to print a new pod.

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..
