Ultralight? :)

It's 159g dry, 242g with CNHL 650mAh 4s LiPo. Quite heavy ultralight 4", but still sub 250g :) Seen a lot lighter builds on that frame. Even a 5" ET5 under 250g :D

you have to compare the prop diameter to the weight to decide if its an ultralight in its class, usualy 4inches are 150g+

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
