I had this build taking dust on the shelf for almost a year; I thought I didn't have a 4S lipo small enough to run it.

Shows up, this thing flings a 1300mah lipo like it's nothing

It's clearly carrying some weight compared to the same sized Tadpole, but it also feels arguabely less twitchy.

All in one a pretty fun flyer if it wasn't for the SCREAMING noise it makes with those 4000KV mamba spinners.

I fly almost exclusively in city parks and although the tadpole fits fine in populated areas, this angry brick just sounds like it's yelling fuck you at everyone and everything, all the time.

To such an extend I'm pretty embarrassed even taking it out in public...

...which doesn't mean I won't still do it every now and then, we all need to vent some steam out sometines :D

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
