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!

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. 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..
