Squishy, destroyer of worlds

THE BOYE IS HERE

After about a year or so of mix matched parts and 1 blown up esc, I finally have squishy in his final form, although it is very different than before.
It went from being a modded martian 220 III to a QAV R and now to a poorly-cut-but-still-somewhat-accurate Alien 5 knockoff. You may ask "why the fuck would you spend an extra 20 dollars to get the same martian frame?". Surprisingly, this Chinese amazon dealer made the frame based off the actual alien and not the Martian. sure the quality of the carbon is jack shit, has a poorly recreated top plate, and needs to be washed/ filed down in some spots but still, 50 dollar Alien.

The difference between the martian and the alien is that the alien is generally more slim and light, while the martian is generally wider and chunkier to avoid a lawsuit as it isn't directly accurate to the Alien blueprints. This same idea tended to be very popular with fidget spinners as companies could easily slightly modify the fidget spinner design and name and could get away with it as the original design is copyrighted.

Hi mate, are these blue props racekraft ones? I tried similar ones on my rs2205s but my motors didnt handle it well at high throttle. lm not sure if it was overproped or if it was an esc or battery issue tough.

yep, those were the RK 5051's. i think the reason they are so tough on motors is because they are pretty heavy and also have a ton of torque, resulting in unhappy motors

I program all mine on a 5 year old Linux laptop. What issues are you having with programming?

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..
