First attempt at a beginner freestyle drone.
360g dry +260g with my chunky-ass battery.
Bought the big battery to slow the thing down a little, plus 8:00 flight times are nice!
AUW puts thrust:weight at in the ballpark of 7.5:1 with these motors/props.

I'll get a lighter battery once I get more comfortable flying

Tower height is limited due to the way the top of the frame angles downward toward the rear -- I would have had to go with a FC/ESC all-in-one or ditched the RunCam Split. Hope it helps and good luck with your build!
