Tried keeping this quad as tidy as possible being my first complete build after owning a few pnp quads.

  • Very nice flight characteristics, smooth and punchy when you need it.
  • Falkor 1200TVL cam looks fantasic on HDO's with a 2.5mm lens.
  • Phaser 3D Printed TPU product quality is excellent.

  • GPS will be moved if it becomes a problem but right now picks up more than enough sats mounted inside the frame body.

My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. 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...
