I felt like building a big boi quad with a semi-autonomous/GPS/etc. flight controller & this was the result. Originally built with Tarot 4108/380kv & generic T-style carbon fibre props I later upgraded it to much smoother running T-Motor 3508/380kv & APC MR props. It went around Pakistan before the upgrade & Iceland after.

In hindsight I really don't like the frame nor the massive Peli case it needs for safe transport, so I'm toying with the idea of selling the case & rebuilding with the much better looking Daya H4 680 frame which will also fit into a much smaller Peli case that I already own.

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
