Really happy with the performance gain of modding the ZMR into a slim build. The center of gravity improvement from the lower battery is a very noticeable improvement in handling. Here is the spacer, I made some small mods to it myself. The final blue spacer was printed in nylon 910 which was passed through a sharpie prior to printing to color it blue. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1255122
I also cut down the top plate to just cover the front two rows of spacers. I used a jigsaw. The carbon fiber cut like butter. Just be sure to wear a gas mask while cutting carbon fiber.
If I could do this again, I would buy the new red bottom EMAX motors, they have insane thrust. I would also get the seriously pro acro FC. $25 for an f3 board is very reasonable.

These are called "mesh" or braided mesh. You can find them with US shipping here if you are US based, and no doubt internationally on other sites. http://www.multirotormania.com/89-braided-mesh

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
