testing out some RotoriousFPV prototype motors - 1204 5000kv single piece bell and super smooth and efficient. fit and finish is top notch and they look so good. super impressed!

here im using one of my original twiglet frames. at 2mm its super light but might be a bit thin for 1204s there is a new version with stronger wrists and other variois tweaks

The Hero6 is..
