update 4/1: relocated RX antennas, and replaced vtx with a TBS Unify pro to get rid of the pigtail. And now its rocking a Lumenier AXII, this antenna is tiny and awesome.

I was just looking at this frame. I like the look of it. How do you like it?

I'm getting ready to start my xs build this evening. Can you please explain what you mean with the camera mounting plates, i have been flying fpv for awhile but this will be my first complete build with my 10 year son helping. And I'm trying to find any info that will make this build go as smooth as possible, even with a 10 year old helping. Lol! Thanks!

On the camera plate, where the mounting hole is, it protrudes a bit. If your stack is too high, it will hit it, and the whole camera plate system will not fit right. When I mocked my build up, my stack was like 1mm too tall, so when I went to assemble it all, the plates didn't all fit. It took me a bit to realize what the issue actually was. Just check your fitment as you go, and you'll be fine. If it is too tall, just use shorter standoffs in/under the stack.

Would love to try out this frame. I've been on the look for a stretched X for while now and this just might be it... I also heard a rumor that D-Quad is releasing a stretched Obsession too, so I just might have to wait for a bit, for now only saw it in american retailers...

Have you flown the XS yet?! The build looks like a real powerhouse and looks really good!

Sad to hear that... A good idea is to check if the 5V BEC can handle the the supply current demanded by the Unify Pro, which BTW is around 600ma... Some cheaper BECs can only do 300ma-500ma, so...

Im still not sure what happened. TBS said it was the LDO regulator. wasnt ran through a BEC. I got a new pbd and unify and wired it up the same and everything is working fine, so who knows. Hopefully it stops raining so I can finally fly this thing and a couple new builds.
