I decided to give my son a quad that he would build for him self. He wanted smal 3" quad and he really loved the Airblade Eclair. He also did not want to fly 4s battery as he is afraid of the power and thus we choose the 1404 4840kv Superman motors as well from Airblade. The stack is HGLRC F4v2 + HGLRC 33A 4in1 and HGLRC nano vtx. I had some spare Foxeer Arrow Micro and R-XSR that went inside as well.
Soldering of such tiny parst proved to be very challengig for him. He was able to solder motor wires and pre-solder all poins on F4 board but putting the wires in was then my duty.

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...
