my foray into plus frames

this one looks like a dead chicken

Youtube Playlist of all the flights on this frame

UPDATE 2018/11/10
I've refreshed this one and went from eagle to mini split and went down from 7500kv to 4500kv and 3s to 4s
Had a quick flight with the HQ 2525 triblades and seems very efficient!
