This is an example of a DRSL spec quad. If you'd like to participate in our spec series, please make sure your drone meets the following criteria.

Spec requirements:

  • Frame: Project 399 Practice Rig (3D prints allowed)
  • Motors: Brother Hobby Avenger (1250kv)
  • Props: HQ Prop Durable 7x4x3 Tri-Blade 7"
  • Battery: 5S (2200mAh or more)
  • Weight: 1280g minimum


  • Smart Audio, or Tramp Telemetry are HIGHLY recommended (you will be changing channels often)
  • We recommend the Hobbywing 60amp ESC. It's been proven to perform well under sustained, high amp draw situations
  • We recommend getting slightly longer screws for the motors (the ones that come with the BH motors are a bit short for this frame, but will work for awhile)
