Racing drones are intended to be fast and crash hard! You have limited time for repairs when you’re out their racing! Lets face it, time on the field is valuable and with the convenience of only needing an M3 driver to replace parts, your focus can stay on flying.
Mounting an FPV camera on this frame is also made easy and simple. This quad copter features 2 carbon plates that hold the fpv camera tight and snug, insuring your camera won't tilt down or up while racing. The camera mounting system allows you to get a max 45 degree angle providing you great flying for freestyle and racing. The R5X also gives you the ability to mount an HD camera, such as a GoPro.
This frame comes with a custom designed PDB with 5/12V output built in and Max input 6S (22.2V). It is important to note that some components require 5V or 12V with this PDB. There should be no issues powering small components requiring 5/12V output. The R5X is designed to have tabs extend outside of the FC to make soldering your ESCs easier and replacing them without having to remove the flight controller.

One of the standoffs were oversized, but it was sealed in a package so I contacted xhover. They started that they will make it right. The frame is really nice, be mindful of the motor screw length frame arms are thinner (3mm) but wider. Nice build, plenty of room. Might try the xl version using the included pdb.
