This is my daily flyer.

Custom sub-50g freestyle micro, designed to replicate a 5" top mounted battery layout and flight characteristics.
Best flown with a 350-400mah 2S Battery due to space limitations. Anything bigger has to be underslung and retuned.

Frame designed for 1103 - 1106 motors (8.5-9mm mounting pattern).
Requires 4x 15mm nylon standoffs & 8x 6mm m3 nylon bolts.
Supports up to 3" props (with alternative 3D Printed pod design). 2.5" (65mm) prop size max with carbon canopy.
Femto FC mounted with foam tape, but the frame supports 16-20mm FC standoffs as well as standard 30.5mm for the lols.
Motors are soft mounted with bicycle inner tube rubber. Same material used for the battery slip pad.
RX and VTX antennas are custom cut from 1.13mm IPEX coax cable, routed through the plastic straw from behind the LED panel to route them away from the carbon cage.
Range could be greatly improved with an XM+ receiver. Then 2.4 will outrange the video on a 25mW whip VTX, but there's no space for a CP.

Betaflight PIDs for acro tune
350mah 67g AUW. Every gram affects the tune at this scale.

R 37 : 58 : 20
P 40 : 55 : 20
Y 120 : 60
0.82 Rate - 0.3 Expo

Put me in the 'I'd buy that' category. Super tidy build.

Ok. Mine seriously​ has to lose weight. It is nearly twice the weight of yours, at it's lowest it was 88gm and only runs 2" props. Like I said, needs work.

I also like the battery on top idea. I am having some serious tuning issues coming out of dives or fast forward flight. I think battery on top may help! Thanks.

ERMAHGERD TOO CUTE. seriously ... it's very cool ... not trolling :)
I bet it rips, too. My 65mm build is like 10g heavier and runs 6500kv 1103's and is a blast. Flies for like 7.5min on 450mah 2s.

Nice build! I wish there was a circular polarized solution that's smaller than a clover or even AXII for these tiny builds. If you go with a whip, you can loose all that canopy. Also cutting down your motor wires will loose you a gram or so, so will those zip ties, don't need the RX antennas that long :)
I'm keen on a micro foxeer that was just announced.

true. true. i don't find I really need a clover at this scale... and yeah I did redo it without the canopy tom foolery. It was my first brushless build so I was leaving lots of room to make mistakes with extra wire. I did see that! coming soon apparently!

Looks great! Are you selling the frame?

I like the back of it, mainly because how parts from completely different places have just fit together so well (the hole in the LED board is perfect size for the antenna protector straw) plus I love LEDs, but I see what you mean, I changed it to something that makes more sense, thanks for the suggestion!

I was wondering if that was intentional :) It is a clean back!
