"One thing that I am a bit concerned is the propeller mount. How good is bearing, how much it lowers down the efficiency and so on. Also will there be replacement parts that can be accessed easily. Anyways, plane looks good and interesting design."

Hi have had my X5 for a while now and its a good model, I am using the FY21 Ap in mine as it was my first fixed wing FPV so I took the easy option. There needed to be a thrust line change in mine, not sure if you have the later model. Hope you have fun with yours 

Cheers Glenn

Hello Christiaan.  I will have to look through my parameter files to locate it.  I built it last year around the time they released the X5.  I will try to get something back to you shortly.
