At 240g AUW (with battery), this rips as a 3s 5 inch quad. Everything runs cool and is very responsive while maintaining impressive efficiency at almost 6 minute flights (without vtx). Can definitely cut weight in some spots!

Note: Pictures are without the VTX as I shorted it with a screw (Lucky me) and will upload full pictures and post flight times when I get the new VTX.

Update: Flew with a 3s 650mah gnb, just under 5 minutes flight time, a little harder than I pushed it on its maiden voyage (not great with line of sight flying). Check out my first attempt at recording a line of sight flight (missed almost every flip and loop, but you can see the shadow of the flips and loops!)

I was worried about the combination at first, but the aggressive props do well with the lower kv with the 3s, I flew it on a 4s 850mah tattu but it felt sluggish and less responsive but did get higher top speeds with higher motor temps as a side effect. In all, much more fun on the 3s!
