Looks cool! How heavy is super light?

69g before batteries!

That's pretty light ! But why so short flight times ? only around 3 minutes.. my leader 120 flies around 5 mins on 550mah 2S, but it's true that i didn't see many similar performing builds to leader :) Did you tried also bigger 2s lipo ?

I think these were rubbish old batteries :smile: I don't have any 2s lipos with xt30 so no.
yeah the leader 120 is one of the legends of the micro world...once they fixed the first batch with the bad motors.

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...
