I built a twin of my new favorite frame, the Floss 2.1. I'm using Kevlar arms on the front, standard on the backs. I also came up with an interesting way of mounting two 470uf caps on the back in a V using wafl's cap caps. Inspired by catching a big a$$ dragon fly in that spot the other day while practicing.

what are those lights on the underside of the

They are white "thin" tinys leds in a TPU case to make them yellow. Yellow is a hard color to reproduce so the TPU with white led works best.

Lol, really cool how you did the caps and how a dragonfly got stuck there. How come your using kevelar in the front?

Thanks! Piroflip was selling them as 'test' arms, so I figured I would put them where I'm most likely to break arms. I've only flown the frame on a track for 1 day so far. Hard to say for sure but it seems like it will hold up well.

Interesting, hope they work out. :)

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. It's ducted, so it's safe to fly most anywhere and it's got the power and control..

The Flysky Nirvana is a very cool radio. It has two enlongated grips, a color touchscreen, module support, rear switches, an internal charger, and a retractable antenna. When you see it you either hate it or love it. From the tall display to the rainbow anodized look it's sure to catch some attention.
