Though I had been building large AP/Filming multirotors since around 2006 Nich Zuhoski and Paul Madere were the ones who really got me into the mini quads. Thought I'd post a little tribute quad to them here. Talon frame with "Dad Air" motors. :) Thanks you two!

Do 2307 2522kv motors do damage to your batteries?

I have a set of 2306 2500kv motors that will puff a low c rating battery on Hulkies, or Avan S bi-blades.

It sounds like you are telling me that it was just the cheap batteries, and I can just go nuts with motors!

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...
