Recommended Build

Below are some component suggestions based on feedback from testing with the frame, trusted brands and what is popular in the FPV community for freestyle…(underlined is what I use)…

A Flipmode can be built with AIO flight controller and individual esc on the arms, or with a 4in1 esc and a flight controller stack. Arm ESC is recommended 13-14mm to avoid overhang. With the 4in1 build, I recommend an ESC without a sheild because it adds extra height. Any questions on components feel free to contact me…

Tools and Extras:

  • 2mm allen key/hex driver
  • Wire cutters
  • Soldering Iron and solder
  • M3 and M5 wrench / spanner
  • 15mm heat shrink for Esc if using individual esc on arms
  • Black electrical tape for taping esc / motor wires around arms
  • 14awg silicone wire and XT60 for power lead (12 awg not recommended due to grommet size and unneccessary)
