Finished this build Mid-summer and just now getting it posted....

Standard Source one semi- budget mid-long range build

This build was alot more than just my first 5 inch build. I also bought a 3d printer and printed my own parts for the first time. Converted to the R9 system and upgraded my radio.

This thing flys great. Of course I have no other 5 inch's to compare it too. The Xing-E motors have been awesome.
