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…

  • 2mm allen key/hex driver
