is this frame lighter than the babyhawk r and if so are you getting better flight times?

How does it compare to the original? I'm trying to decide between buying the hornet $160 or the babyhawk-r $120. I don't like that the babyhawk-r has really short flight times. The other difference is the hornet has a better flight controller (f4 vs f3). I think the babyhawk-r may have a marginally better camera (micro arrow vs hglrc elf camera).

This is for a beginner micro drone small park flyer. What should i do?

Buy the babyhawk r first and then transplant it to hornet if needed. I think F3 is good enough for micro drone.

Thanks, the other option I'm looking at is the HGLRC XJB-145. It's a 3" with F4 28A stack, ELF camera, 1407 motors. $135 PNP (ie $15 more than BHR)

More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..
