I present the KingKong 188mm quad. Frame sold by either Hobbyking or Banggood and I am sure others for under $8.00.

This summer brings in a new race arena for us here in the north country....
More details as things progress

Great job! looks pretty clean. I can't tell but are the ESC's going to strike the ground when you land? That may cause you issues unless they are protected. Also you'll do well to get tour receiver antennas spread out. Either by strapping to arms or using zip tie hack...which is where you use a zip tie tied to the frame in an upward position (away from props), to support your antenna and tape or heat sring the antenna to the zip ties.

Nice work! Congrats on the build!

Thanks...
Yeah, it just something thrown together. Using a cc3d and spektrum satellite. I'll be putting a different FC in it. Naze32 or flip. Smaller rx as well. Esc's are fine. Since pics were taken I place rubber pads under all four motors.
