so i have fubared both of the recent builds ive posted. between a fire and a hard crash on asphalt. both the slam nasty and squish builds are dead. the slam nasty frame survived the fire but the fc, vtx and a set of motors gone. but this frame only has 20x20 fc holes. so i took the broken squish bottom plate, cut the arms off, and used it as a whoop to 20x20 fc adapter. surprisingly i didn't gain any weight. which is odd as the slam nasty bottom plate is 3mm and the squish is 2mm. flies awesome even though its cobbled together. never let a broken frame stop you from flying.

The Hero6 is..

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
