Psylocke - XHover MXP150

I first wanted to build the FalconMultiRotor Rasvelg 3" but there was already 2 others that I fly with flying it. So I set out to find another 3" build and came across XHover's. So many possible options with this frame that it took some time for me to decide what I wanted in this quad.

I knew I wanted to try out the new Betaflight F3 fc but with what ESCs and motors? When picking up the Betaflight F3, it dawned on me that they had the XRacer Quadrants also. It only made sense to get both. Then, as soon as Piroflip sent an email saying their Hyperlite 1407s were back, I just knew I had to jump on them quick. Piro's stock on their popular products seem to sell out within a few hours. All other parts pretty much are standards that you'd want in a quad.

Some flight footage mounted with a GoPro Session:

Beauty of a build!

How does the BF3+Quadrant combo run in the pictured configuration? I'm about to build a clone of it and wanted to make shure what you laid out is ideal.

Flies great IMO. But you be the judge, here's flight footage from a while back on this rig .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNVTdWJ3xGE&list=PL8DvsSmVhsmUdjzXojsQvn2ZmxSnST66v&index=1

Oh and footage is also with a GoPro Session on it, so you should get a good understanding with the extra weight of that GoPro on it.

I'd say you did a great job with the build! Smooth and locked in the video. Inspiring work. I'm gonna install it tonight!

Nice looking build! How do you like the Swift Mini? I'm going to be using that on a build soon myself.

Looks great .. feels great. It's basically the same as my Swift, only smaller. I'm waiting on my Swift 2 for a new build as I heard great things about it's image quality improvements, not just the additional OSD features.

Awesome! I'm putting a Swift 2 on a KISS'd Japalura. Looking forward to comparing the two cams.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
