Honey Badger

I started ordering parts to upgrade my old quad.... then this happened.

I want my battery top mounted I thought to myself. That's where it began. The frame came first then I started seeing problems fitting the old hardware to this new and far superior frame... so I ordered a 4-in-1 ESC. "Oooooh" I thought to myself, "6S, 45amp all tucked away under the hood, hmmmm this could be something goddamn sexy!". That was the point of no return, the event horizon that lead my down the 6S path. Honey Badger was born!

Yeah, you've been there, you know what I'm talking about.
