This is NOT a leader 120. Just using the frame. Broke a bunch of other stuff so I cobbled this together. Ended up being a simple build that tears it up in the yard pretty decently on 2S. The two biggest downsides are the 25mW aio cam (so you can't fly very far) and this silly KingKong stack with only 2 mounting holes in the ESCs. Otherwise I've done extremely minimal tuning on Butterflight (3.5) and it is a fun little guy to rip around the yard or during my lunch breaks. The leader 120 frame is nice if you already have a whoop-style aio cam/vtx. It makes putting everything together very straightforward and easy. I know folks have crammed micro cams in there but I couldn't be bothered to shoehorn one in there. Plus, the aio cam really helps keep the overall price and weight down. I'd say it flies great for the price.

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
