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)

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
