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?

Sure! I actually forgot to weigh it before flying. I have since crashed and recoved it from a lake :D :D It is sub 250 grams with lipo though!! when I get solid numbers I'll add another comment here in a bit

Gotcha, I designed a neutral CG 3inch frame that sits just under 200grams. I should be posting the build very soon. I am just curious where other 3inch builds hit the scales at.

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

The Flysky Nirvana is a very cool radio. It has two enlongated grips, a color touchscreen, module support, rear switches, an internal charger, and a retractable antenna. When you see it you either hate it or love it. From the tall display to the rainbow anodized look it's sure to catch some attention.
