1707 motors are overkill on a 3" frame. but who really cares?

How’s the frame holding up. I just got mine and dang the arms have a lot of flex due to the direction of the cut. Was hoping it would be a stiffer frame like my last 3” build.
Seems that all the win 3 frames are the same. I have the stingy which is a solid carbon frame and a lot less flex than this one. I would assume Xhover thought this one through also.

My Win 3 is very stiff. No complaints there. Moved the components to another frame now. But no problems with the frame while I used it.

Cool build. How are the rcx 1707 motors? Thinking of using the 3200 KV version for a 4” build.

The 3900kv are incredibly inefficient. I get 2 minutes on 850mah. Not sure how the 3200kv are tho.

Thanks. I added a few more pictures. Not my cleanest build. But it turned out good enough for me.

It flies great. Max flight time is 2 minutes on 850 mah. I don't have any video yet. Basically done a few test flights so I don't have much exciting video.
