Ro-Ro-Ro-Torius! 2.5" with Runcam Split mini.
My first micro build, came in a bit heavy, but thats alright (for the first one). 118g with foamy pads and zipties (not pictured), 185g with the flight controller armed.
Used RCX 1304 4000kv not the 5000kv listed below. I changed the standoffs for 25mm ones to fit the Runcam Split mini, Preorderd the new V2 (with 1 board) maybe it will fit with the provided 20mm standoffs... we shall see... Also I would probably would use the akk nano v2 style vtx as the akk x5 is more square, the v2 would fit better. Finally don't forget more m2 hardware!! m2x6mm for the props!
Flys awesome, need to work on: jello... mounting/ sheilding the capacitor away from the rx and vtx (fpv feed is noiser than I am used to) adjust the pids and rates (I normally fly a 6"... the 2.5" is like a crazy angry little bug!), Securing the battery better (as seen in the vid..)

Update: The runcam split mini 2 fits with the 20mm standoffs! :( I had a short, magic smoke came out of the board.... so back to V1... Drat.
