Rotor Riot Community – 5″ Freestyle Frame Opinions
Ak47! Best frame ever! Je
Fly a lightweight glide build and you’ll never buy another 150 gram frame Cecil
Love my Flynoceros Sköll v3. Super customizable, can take a beating, and most importantly has a lifetime warranty Chris
Alien/Apex/Reverb/Martian for the poor. Easy to tune, flies great and takes a lot of torture Leonardo
Apex, BotAFX, and Acrobrat Jacob
ANYTHING FLYNOCEROS!!! Josh
Source one, it’s open source, everyone cuts it and it’s a fraction of the price of the other frames and will probably fly just as good! Save your money for better components or replacing arms. Don’t fall for the bait and switch warranties that are a pain in the ass to use, leave you waiting for parts and some are limited time only Cody
I do not want to name names. But I have 3 very expensive quads and one Source one v3 and the source is becoming my favorite quad. It is has very low frame noise which is great for tuning and handles really well. That said everything about fpv is so personal that this is just what is working for me Dustin

I almost bought the skyliner hd but all that gap and lack of standoffs under the top plate I decided not too. It’s a shame too because I thought it was a good looking frame. I ended up ordering the dji edition badger which is supposed to be here today. Hope it flys well with no vibrations Frank
