This is my first 6S build. Took a while to get my hands on some of these particular POPO motors, but finally found some in stock. It was a super easy build compared to the tighter race builds I'm used to doing. All ready to go, just needs to be maidened, which is hopefully this weekend if weather cooperates.

Arm bumpers, SMA holder, and GoPro mount designed by XeroVolume. I did the cam mount/guard, since the Predator v3 that I like flying sticks out a bit past the front of the frame. Front camera mount is Ninjatek Armadillo TPU, the rest is YOYI TPU and NinjaTek Cheetah TPU.

These have built in skids on the bottom so the frame won't scrape when landing on concrete. I have separate TPU soft mounts on the top. Here's the design. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3618891

It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

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..
