The Dingo frame from Sabotage is built thick for freestyle pilots who aren't afraid of grinding and slamming. The build is rather straight forward and should offer up very few surprises. TX tucks behind the camera, VTX spools around near the cap. If you're going to run the AKK transmitter just know that it will grab your ESC noise so pad it, shield it, or find a position that mitigates it. Once you solve for it, it won't harm you and it's a cheap win. If you don't test for it (power up) then expect it to generate enough noise to make you crazy.

Motors were chosen for weight:efficiency:power ratios. They are smooth as butter and under crusing flight without a GoPro will give you about 9-10m time. 4-5m under GoPro cam load or doing fast throttle freestyle.

This was my first build and I'd do it about all the same. Might switch up to R9/Crossfire soon since concrete makes a hard to pass 5ghz barrier but otherwise I have enjoyed this build quite a lot. Hope you do too.

(for batteries this works great as a 4s, strong as a 5s, and crazy crispy on a 6-- so use what you have, or scale as you like.)
