It's built like a tank!

After breaking the arms on my first two builds, I decided to find a frame that just doesn't break. I went with the Goby 180 because IndestructibleQuads.com based one of their BNF quads on it.

This was to be my backup build, so instead of having expensive T2 motors, I just went with the $8.50 Racerstar BR2205s. I chose that instead of the standard BR2205 because of the prop grippers at the base of the prop shaft.
