Re-built my Strictly Racing Drones SR5 with mostly new parts to make it closer to my other rigs for this season. Used shorter standoffs - 30mm instead of 35 just to try and trim it down a little. If I had a different VTX I could probably go even lower. 350g as it stands.

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..
