I designed the KDrone V1 5zoll Racer (Prototype) based on the TBS core and used parts from different other manufactures to complete my builds.

My design goals for the frame were to maintain light weight, with max durability and good accessibility for easy maintenance.

  1. TBS Cube with zmx X25 2300KV (Betaflight 2.8.1)
  2. SP Racing F3 with DYS XS 30A ESC and ZMX X25 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  3. AIO Board HGLC F3 V4 http://bit.ly/2h6YrNj with Cobra Champion 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  4. Revo F4 with Racerbee 30A ESC and RCX2400KV Motors (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  5. no name F3 Board with DYS XS30A and ZMX X20 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)

To demonstrate, the frame can adapt to a variety of different internals, I build 5 different versions so far by always using the same frame but different electronic parts beside VTX and TX and the camera.
I used as VTX the TBS Unify and as TX the TBS Crossfire micro receiver. The HS1177 was used to supply the video feed to my FPV goggles.

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
