5-inch budget build. Durable, smooth and stable flight.
The frame is AlfaRC Apache 230mm, modeled on GEPRC GEP-KHX5 Elegant. Engines, ESC, FC, camera and VTC are part of the Eachine Tyro109 model. Flysky 8ch receiver. Noname 5040 propellers, supplied with the Tyro109 set.
First of all, the frame is very durable and protects electronics inside. The copter weighs approx. 375g without batteries. I already had some serious accidents with it and survived them without damage, with only bent propellers.
The total cost is around USD 130.

My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..
