Serge from PiroflipRC personally gave me this frame backin the Fall of 2016 before they offically went on sale and this was why this story (and the way it all turned out) was so important to me . My bouncing baby Hyperlite was born in 2016 and went MIA in January of 2018 never to be found after over a week of searching.... Until this morning when it was stumbled upon by accident after almost 6 months. I did a thorough cleaning and inspection and she flew this evening again. It endured freezing temps below 20 degrees, winter rains , and early spring heat into the 100's. I didn't have to change or replace anything other than the vtx antenna. A couple motors are a bit noisy when spun by hand but it flew great. The quad was laying upside down under an orange tree all this time. the one photo shows it when it was found this morning and the other was after the cleanup. I missed this little sucker. Picture are of when it was found (Today) after it was cleaned up and flown, and when it was origionally born.

It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
