So this is a rebuild of my previous post with a few upgrades and MUCH better build quality so that it served me without breaking anything but props for about 6 months. Somehow, it was reasonably lighter too (previous post being about 360g whearas this one is about 320g...)

Tape was to help protect from grass and moist grass and it was efficiant. This build is no more because a certaim crash motivated me to do a more major makeover which i'll post next
