Just finished my Armattan Gecko 3" build! Can't wait to fly it once the rain stops!

Update: I looked at the pics after uploading them and wow really blurry, so i retook them. I also changed from an XT60 to an XT30. The XT60 looked way out of proportion!

Very nice!
What's the weight (or estimated weight :) ) and what are your flight times?
I've wanted to build one but got scared for the above reasons.
Thanks for the input!

Once I get out to fly i will record the flight times on 4s 850mah 95c and 70c batteries. I am trying to find my scale to weigh this one and my rooster build.

The buzzer location was really bothering me. I was able to fit it just behind the runcam. I was now able to heat shrink the capacitotr to the power wire. Much happier! Pics added.

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.
