How's this build for an ultra-lightweight 3"?
I'm going for a lightweight build, with as few compromises as possible, while staying as light as possible with the aim to have looong flight times.

51g dry, 75g with 300mah 3S battery.

Dual colour polycarbonate 3D printed custom frame (I'll upload to Thingyverse soon)
Amaxino 1103 5000kv motors
HQ 3x3 props
Caddx EOS2 (have a Nano 2 to replace it with on the way)
TBS Unify Pro32 Nano VTX
XM+ Rx
iFlight Succex 16x16 stack
Realacc UXII stubby vtx antenna

I'm hoping for >10 minutes flight on a 450mah 3S battery... Think I may need a lighter prop to do that... Proper maiden tomorrow I hope!

Nice build, but, too big props for 1103 motors?

not too bad as they are 5000kv, but hace since swapped to the new HQ 3x2 props.
