My very first fpv quadcopter build.

I enjoyed a lot building this and looking forward to the next build. I'm still not sure if I want to build a 3" which of I have the frame already or do I want to build another 5" freestyle kwad with top mounted battery.

All the parts are available on Banggood.

You can find me on Instagram.

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S.
