Switchback Frame: Used by many top racers, I decided to get this frame. I have flown it, and it has suffered many crashes on all surfaces, and is still going strong.

Hobbywing 40a ESC: I got this ESC because I had burned out too many aikon/talon gigawatt ESCs. These are also used by top racers and are suppose to be bullet proof.

Clracing F4 mini: This cheap flight controller takes 6s, and has solder pads. I do not need to re-pin connectors which is a pain on other flight controllers.

Runcam nano 2: This cheap camera has good image quality and is very simple to use.

TBS unify nano: since I am racing with this build, I do not need too much output on my VTX. This is a budget VTX from a reputable brand.

Frsky XM+: Simple receiver, does the job

Xilo axii: small antenna and fits in the frame. Works well.

Total weight NO PROPS: 260 grams.
