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.
