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)

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
