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.

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..
