I was really excited to get this, but it looks like I jumped too soon. Here's the things I had to do to get it flying well:

- snip the ends off of the camera mount screws because THEY WERE TOUCHING THE BOARD INSIDE THE CASING! Caused intermittent camera blackouts. This could also be fixed with some thick washers
- add nylon washers between the motormount screws and the LED boards to prevents shorts to the traces on the LED boards
- purchase and install a longer pigtail for the vtx so that it can be rotated 180 degrees to allow access to the button and LED
- Add loctite to the motormount screws
- Tried to use a FS-A8S as the receiver so I wouldn't have to do any soldering. Don't use an A8S, just don't. Ended up using an FS-i6B that I de-cased and de-pinned so it would fit.
- Swapped out the props for king kong 5x4x3's so that it doesn't totally chew through batteries
- re-soldered a number of joints that were done badly. I've spent hundreds of hours soldering things both for work and play, so I know a cold solder joint when I see on.

There are additional things I did in betaflight to get set up, but those I would expect from an ARF so I won't mention them.

Also kind of annoying is that since the original x220s was released, they have released a new version with an all carbon fiber frame unlike the one I got which is sandwiched carbon/fiberglass/carbon. I've not broken an arm yet, but I'm expecting it at some point. Check which one you are getting! There's no excuse for a racing quad that doesn't have a tough as nails frame. (Posted on 8/25/2017)
