So I decided I needed to get into the 3" realm for something i can fly close to home.

For the frame I went with a Armattan Japalura as its a pretty stout frame for a 3"

For the motors I wanted something to match both the color's and performance. Not much in the 1407 world to choose from so i went with the tried and true HGLRC Flames.

I wanted to keep it small and simple so i went with a 20x20 Mamba F405 Mini MK2. All the features i need in a small compact space.

VTX went with the new TBS Unify Pro Nano 5G8. Small light and powerful.

Camera I will be using my trusty Caddx Ratel as i am used to the quality and look of it.

This time around i practice my soldering and have improved quite a bit from my last build however this 20x20 was a challenge to solder to.

Let me know what you think.

Long Range build coming next.

More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
