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?
