Strawberry Basher

I recently took advantage of the big BG sale and bought enough parts to build a couple of quads. This is my new basher...
I built this one using the F4 Flame and opted not to use a 4-in-1... I think she turned out clean anyway and I'm looking forward to crashing it up this weekend.

Wow! Dude that thing looks amazing! Where did you get that skin? Also did you use shorter standoffs?

UnderDawg   Sep 14, 2017 

Thanks! I bought the Skinz on Amazon. I listed the link above in misc.... Also I did drop the top 5mm .

Looks amazing! I'd have trouble forcing myself to beat this around.
Any reason for original Racerstar 2205 rather than the newer 2205S? Just curious.

I have that problem with all my quads. As for the motors, I got a better than listed price for just the 2205's

Ah, fair enough. Thanks.

Looking good! Red is not a common quad color from what I've seen but you've sure made it look good.
May I know how have you mounted that XT60 on the back?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Thanks!! That's the Plastic Spider TPU mount. I used a m3 loc- nut on the underside of the plate to hold it in place. I bought it here. http://great3d.com/top-mount-xt-60-mount/ other than that it's just 10mm mesh zip- tied to the bottom of the frame. BTW the black and red matches my truck and my Fat Sharks.

Are you going to do a softmount pad to keep the battery off those screw cap things?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Most definitely. I may cut down some landing pads for that job.

Looking good! I've always avoided those red motors because I just don't know how to match them. Seems you had no problem complimenting them.

UnderDawg   Sep 12, 2017 

Thanks!! I bought the vinyl back when I built the Frog Lite, but it just didn't work out on that build.

It's nice to have a beater quad to get risky with.

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
