Nano-sized Quad with MEGA-sized FUN! Explored the capabilities of the R3DShifters R3DWhoop Ion, a 3D Printed FPV Race Drone! If you’ve never heard of R3D Shifters, it is a company based out of New York City, USA. R3D Shifters currently has 4 different frame kits all made from carbon fiber/nylon filament and 3D printed.
