It's alive!! the last photo is just to show you how much of a PITA this thing ws to assemble. That is what it looked like when i was wiring the receiver, under the fc, behind and up but in front of the runcam split mini board, and up behind the fpv cam.

yea. this is not a novice build. it's like jenga/erector set level 80. but it looks great, and it works!! no maiden yet, come back soon for some video...

Maiden flight!

9:03 minute flight (after water rescue and repair)

Could you post the Dry Weight and the All Up Weight?

Minichado   Sep 17, 2018

weighted it today. 126 dry, 222 AUW. room to add a GPS module and still be well under 250gm
