My old beater quad was getting a bit too old (OG Red Bottoms, F3, no OSD) so I decided it was time for a new budget build on an equally solid frame.

A relatively straightforward build, however the cutouts in the baseplate in front of & behind the stack actually make mounting the little things (receiver, buzzer, cap, etc.) a little bit tricky. The vertical space is also a little tight for a 3 board stack, so I had to mount the VTX sideways (with the MMCX connector protruding slightly out the side) in order to allow the battery strap to fit behind it - I didn't want to have to sandwich the battery strap right against the VTX, which would obstruct all airflow. Not a huge fan of the complete omission of slots for the battery straps, but otherwise it seems like a comfy frame for the price.
