how does it fly? what kv motors did you get?

Check what I wrote to Burning North down below. Since I fly 5 inch, I got the 2800 kv.

camera is quite vulnerable out there but i also have a mongoose with micro sparrow set with front verticals pointing backwards however i get alot of motor and props in my fpv image. does setting it out front eliminate most of that issue?

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
