I smashed my 3in Carbon Micro Oblivion due to a RX loss and it landed on concrete T_T. Since I already have three 3in toothpicks, I decided to move this one over to a 4in frame and try out the new HQ T4x2.5 Bi-Blade Props. I only got a couple of packs on it but so far it's a good cruiser. The 1404 3850kv motors are pulling a max of 34 amps on a 650mah 4s according to the current sensor but I never calibrated it.

What do you think about the durability of the frame? I measured the arm width - they're approx. 4.5mm - have you had any bad drops with this guy yet?

The frame is 3mm thick and the arms are 7mm wide. The frame cut along the carbon weave for additional strength/stiffness. I haven't had any bad crashes with this one just yet, but the frame feels really solid.

Ah ok - I was looking at the 65mm frame - that one is 4.5mm wide. Thanks for the response!

But does it "fly like a 5 inch"? :P

That GEPRC board is one of the few aios I've used that has a pretty accurate current meter out of the box. Pretty crazy it can handle those motors. Have you tried it on 3s?

Thats good the know about the current sensor being pretty accurate. On 3s it flys pretty well it's a lot more controlable in small spaces for a newbie like myself.
