If my color scheme doesn't scream "Witness Me!" I don't know what does.

I've been beating the hell out of this build for months, it was sticky with chewed leaves and sap so I cleaned it and gave it a new look. Actual cost was $150 and it flies freestyle better and more smoothly than any of my other quads.

Removed the motor anodizing, I'm tired of red. The chrome is vinyl for wrapping a car. Normally you wrap metal to look like carbon, I'm doing the opposite

Wow, that price. How did you get that silver effect?

The chrome is using something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Silver-adhesive-release-Air-Free-3MIL-VViViD8/dp/B00L9J5DTE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497235283&sr=8-1&keywords=chrome+vinyl+wrap
It's great because it also insulates your electronics from the carbon frame.

I painted the camera case with enamel silver. And used drain cleaner to remove the anodizing from the motors. That last one I encourage caution on, caustic soda is nasty stuff. I also wasn't sure it'd work but I have a lot of these motors ($4 a piece) so it was worth a shot.

As for price I always use a coupon code of some sort from banggood

Thanks! I did take off the bells, wasn't sure what would happen to the windings.

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
