I wanted the trashcan but didn't want to wait super long on preorder like what happened with the Mobula so I ordered all the replacement parts and they arrived before most people got their preorders I think.. I also had the crazybee F4 pro but I'm not too great at soldering and now it has a lifted power pad.. so it's the F3 board for now.
I heard that the trashcan uses the 16:9 camera and it doesn't have as much vertical field of view as the 4:3 camera so that's what I got.

Broke the canopy on the first flight first crash and it didn't even seem like that hard a hit. I'll glue it back together maybe securing it better to get rid of the jello hopefully

The TPU does help with Jello, and you are still able to adjust the cam angle with all the prints I've seen. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3374386

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...
