Oh I see. So how do you like the Loki? I am tempted to get one because of the 6mm super slim arms and the weight. I have a 3 inch build using the Storm Sirio X3 frame and I really like it.

It is pretty good, though the 6mm makes it a bit heavy. I think maybe there are better frames for the same or less weight that are as durable, but so much of that is user preference. I like this one because if you work it right you can mount the battery on top.

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..
