Built this as a light weight 6" long range racer - but wait, light weight? Why are you using T-Motor Fat60s??? Well, I did at first - V2 now has an old, unused set of Cobra 2204 1960kv which dropped over 40grams in weight and WAY increased efficiency. Cause that's what I had on hand... Currently the build comes in at 290g with props, but could drop that a little more by dumping the GoPro mount and some other crap. With the new (old) Cobras - I got 15 minutes in flight time using a R-Line 1550 spinning DAL 6040s.

Did you find the micro camra mounts on Thingiverse? If so could you please link the file? Your the only one running a micro camera one Rotorbuilds. Thanks!

Which motors are you planning to switch to? Will you run 5s?

nvm I can't read, still wondering about 5s though lol.

LOL - I've done that more times than I care to admit. It's 5S capable, but not with 6" props on the current motors. 5" would be fine with 5S. If I were to swap to lower kv (maybe 2206/7 1800kv), then I'd attempt 5S with 6" props.

Swapped motors to some old Cobra 2204 1960kv - I've seen some other guys test those motors on 5S (using HQ 6030s). Seemed to work ok. Gonna try for a long range flight this week.

Nice work. I bet it screams!

I maidened it last night - I've got an ESC acting a little weird (under preforming making it bob/dive under heavy throttle). So I didn't get on it too much. Gonna try to get it figured out soon!

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..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
