T3h HyperLIT Floss. This is my first 4" build and it's a blast. I've been eyeing the frame and build for a while and was inspired to build one after being beaten by one at a MultiGP Race. I named it "T3h HyperLIT" simply because the Taranis is one character short to accept "T3h Hyperlite" as a model name, and I thought it sounded good.

The build is full featured with a current senor, OSD, Smartport Telemetry, and Unify Smartaudio. The omnibus F4 Pro doesn't have solder points for the secondary UARTs and they instead break-out to a micro connector on the FC. Due to this I soldered my smartport and smartaudio to the back of that connector port. All of the electronics have also been silicone conformal coated for waterproofing.

It flies great on 4s with the KK 4045 Bi-Blades, I was able to qualify in the #1 spot for a finals(crashed out in finals) at a recent MultiGP Cincinnati Quad Racers event with this setup(DVR below). Currently the build weighs in at 190g without a battery and 295g with a 850mah 75c Tattu. It seems a bit heavy for this style build, I could certainly shave some weight with wire lengths and maybe a micro swift camera.

What's the dry weight on this little guy without battery?

Great build! Did you try other props like DAL or only the kk4045? Waiting to see the dvr :)

I've only tried the KK prop yet. The DVR is up.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
