Halloa people 🙂

I received a brand new frame from iFlight yesterday.. It's the new version of their conventional freestyle frame..
BUT.. as you might have noticed: they are allso about to release a few RTF versions based on that frame..
In this thread I'll review the frame And build the quad with the same components as the RTF will use...

the frame: iFlight XL5 v4 freestyle frame

the base RTF version: iFlight Nazgul5 entry - Banggood version

There will allso be higher speced version which will only be available from their own site...



Specifications:
type: Freestyle
wheelbase: 227mm
base thickness: 5mm arms
material(s): carbon fiber + allu standoffs
weight: 109 grams
chamfered edges: yes.. minute but well done
clean: yes, spotless
buzzer: nope
LED board: nope
battery strap: mine didn't but yours should come with 2
battery anti-skid pad: mine didn't but yours should..
All kinds of planes, multi rotors, heli's, cars & boats..

A seriously designed framed too ... she should be real rigid. You don't often see 5mm replacement arms.

It only fits one stack though ? 20x or 30x is nice but how high can it go ?

The price on the frame is well in line too for a pleasant change.
Fly like your mad at it.

yes true.. I think there would be room for a 20x20 stack at the rear.. 

I have 3 layers in 1 stack in it now.. That fit's well.. Basically the rear is now empty in mine.. 

And yes.. allso check out that RTF version.. quite a good price for a brand RTF 5" ?

Always fun isn't it. 

Watching battery I was seeing a sizable dip in voltage especially if it being fully charged.  This may have something to do with your motors running warm ? Was that the same lipo you used for your LOS ?

Yeah.. same lipo (well same KIND).. simply not that high a C-rating so that voltage dip was to be expected 🙂 
Still a 4-minute flight time, so not really BAD bad 🙂 

The motors were actually Les warm after the FPV flight (more airflow I guess)

Other than that errant rssi scare and the killdeer's (again) 😋  they really do not like you....

... it seemed to fly glassy smooth for an out the box maiden.  By all appearances it would be a good buy and the price is right.

The feeling is mutual 😋 😃 

Yes.. imagine the RTF even coming with a tune! 😮  
I'm not really sure if I'll order one sinds I kinda allready have one..
