I lost my beloved Featherlight Falcon project in a marsh. I was never able to locate it, likely because it was all black. As cool as that looks, I won't make that mistake with this one. Originally designed for the Featherlight series of frames, the falcon pod is just flexible enough as is to work on the 5" kingcrab frame. :)

I love the new color!!! Sad you lost the first one, but I just can't get enough of the design! I love the new "ears" and I wonder if you will bother strapping a gopro back on it, with the split in there and all

I've flown it just to see if the orange plastic flexed differently and possibly induced some jello, but things are looking good. I will be using mine for long range flights more than freestyle, so the gopro won't be riding often.

I love this canopy, you did a seriously good job on it. Great job mate

Thanks! It's my favorite thing I have made for quads. I want to do more with it. There's really benefits to the shape and a lot more potential.

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. It's ducted, so it's safe to fly most anywhere and it's got the power and control..

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..
