This frame was sent to me courtesy of Joe Engalan from Detroit Multirotors for the purpose of building / testing / reviewing. I had never built a 3" before let alone a stretch-x configuration but I had a lot of fun and the thing really RIPS!

Still need to do some tuning and get rid of some propwash but we will get there =)
