micro 2" dual stack HD build

I'm dismantling the fishpepper 3s hummingbird build for this one. It'll be slightly heavier but it'll have much better camera protection

update 30 December 2018
trying out a glass lens on the caddx turtle as the stock lens has a lot of flare and is susceptible to damaga as the elements are plastic

got some blade guards - these are half circled which are PERFECT as full 2inch circles wouldn't have fit without modification. Also the fact that the back arms come in a an angle turns the half circle perfectly so they don't touch in the middle! It's like it was made for this frame.
The guards are about 2 grams a piece so it does add significant weight. But flying indoors, the added weight is a good trade for the added confidence of flying around tight spaces without blade strikes.

My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

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...
