This kit has been developed and designed after the amazing popularity and well received Version 1, the XILO 5” Freestyle DIY Kit. In this case Lumenier and Xilo worked side by side with Joshua Bardwell on multiple features to make the kit even better:
- New Airframe Design: The QAV-S - Joshua Bardwell Edition frame optimizes the space and weight for a 5” quad design, with a low profile body for electronics, enough space to fit an Analog or Digital Video System, engineered center of gravity when carrying an Action Camera, robust and structured design that is meant for hardcore freestyle.
- New Motors: The Xilo Stealth 2207 is a modern looking motor that has a sleek blacked out design. It is budget friendly and features a stainless steel shaft for added strength, high-temperature copper winding, smooth stainless-steel bearings, and a no-slip prop mounting surface.
- New Electronics: The new XILO STAX V2 features an optimized design layout compatible with a plug and play DJI connector and has optimal solder pad layout for Receiver and Analog video transmitter.
- New Propellers: The new Gemfan 51477 is a lightweight design that Joshua Bardwell chose as a good balanced, durable, and versatile propeller for freestyle lovers. And it is purple!
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEEN THIS HD KIT AND THE ANALOG KIT?
The "HD" kit substitues the analog video transmitter and camera for the Caddx Vista with Nebula Pro Digital HD System. This allows for a real time HD video feed from your drone to the DJI FPV Goggles for a truly immersive and high-definition experience.
WHAT IF I CRASH? ARE THERE SPARE PARTS AVAILABLE?
Yes! GetFPV carries all the parts included in this bundle as individual spare parts as well. So fly hard, and have no fear! If you need a replacement part, we've got you covered and plan to support this kit and all the parts for a long time.
IS THIS DRONE KIT GOOD FOR BEGINNERS?
Yes! No matter your skill level, this kit is made for you! We take the guesswork out of picking parts by compiling all the gear together in one easy to assemble kit. This all-inclusive bundle pairs together proven components that are guaranteed to work well together, making the build easy for you.
Not only do you get all the parts, but XILO has partnered with the renowned FPV instructor Joshua Bardwell with a full step-by-step build guide.

I'M NEW TO FPV AND HAVE NOTHING. DOES THIS KIT HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED TO GET STARTED?
This bundle comes with everything the "drone" itself needs except the radio receiver.

Please check out our "Additional Suggested Parts" list below for suggestions. The good news is most of these parts you can use across multiple drones, so it is an upfront investment, but you won't have to necessarily buy them for every drone you build .
You will need the following in addition to this kit if you don't already have them:
- Radio Transmitter (Controller)
- FPV Goggles / Video Receiver
- Tools for Building
- Battery Charger
