A light 3" cruiser I made in order to have maximal flight time with 2S li-ion 18650 VTC6 battery.
Turn out it's also pretty fun to fly with any 2S lipo too, light and has thrust.

I had to mount the FC upside down, took motor connectors off and had to cut canopy to access usb port.

3D-printable 20x20 stack to whoop board adapter I made for this frame: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3785413
