I wanted everything to fit like a glove so I carefully ordered each part one at a time to ensure a clean fit.
Talon F7 and Aikon ak32 esc because of their plug and play harness. (FC is turned 180°)
TBS Crossfire Nano and TBS unify pro nano because of the white noise stack board.

Brain3D bumpers and Ebay stainless steel hardware on the way.
XT60 since all my lipos and chargers are the same.

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...
