Lang range 4S cruiser. Set up with betaflight GPS rescue using M8N glonass gps. This rendition is a full rebuild from my previos 5.7 Alien that took a dunk in a river. Plenty of power and decent flight times as long as you're concious of your throttle position. The alien frame is a pain to secure batteries via bottom mount but can be done with the correct size standoffs uner the FC.

Nice 7" build. Interested to know your AUW too.
What size batteries are your running?

thanks! never weighed it but its not that heavy. on a 4s 1550mah battery it'll do 8 min flights if im throttle conscious. will be adding a new hero5 mount and go back to top mounting the batteries. feels more stable as a top mount.

Looks great. Whats the range? speed? Got video?

range is good. only been out 2km with it so far just testing the gps rescue mode. custom made rx antenne puts it way up and asay from the carbon ao LQ was 99% the whole way out and back. speed is good. fast enough to cover some decent ground pretty quick but still somewhat efficient. and just waiting on new gopro mount for video.

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...

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. Features Gamepad style design Hall sensor gimbals Internal AFHDS 2A transmitter 3.5in 320x480 color..
