SNOW-STYLE

Built for the air. Ready for snow. Waterproofed, KISSed, Shrike Style FPV quadjumacopter. It just doesn't get any better than this.

All seriousness though, this is probably the best handling quad I've ever flown. Not sure if it's the top-mount frame, the all-KISS setup or what, but damn she flies great.

Don't hit your battery on that tight frame. :)

Looking great! What product did you use for waterproofing the FC?

Thanks Markusu!

I used the silicone based conformal coating. Seems to work perfectly. It's kinda like clear nail polish that you can solder through later.

I've wrecked this thing into snow like 20 times now, and I just blow off the snow and get back in the air. So far so good!

You must have been very careful to set it down in the snow like that :) It does make for a nice backdrop though.

Looking pretty pristine for a post-bashing session.

Not so many full-on tree strikes. More like hitting little ghost branches and falling out of the sky. Luckily, snow is soft and clean :)
