205-210g dry. Yup. I've literally never seen a quadcopter move from A to B as quickly as this. Its slows down very quickly when you let off the throttle and speeds up almost too quickly when you put your foot down! Honestly, I had just seen f40 pros in action as well as the rs2306 white tops and they may have had a higher top speed but acceleration- wise, this seemed better hands down. The frame was diy-ed and was actually more durable than I expected it to be (frame weighs about 35g) and it only really broke because I was flying at the UKDS track in nottingham which consists of metal gates, roof and concrete floor and it was a full speed crash into said metal gate.(continued flying with a 15g penalty of a fibreglass reinforcement and electrical tape) Despite the ludicrous speed, it was really smooth, controllable and tracked straight and true, which has made me really impressed with the air 40 2450kv motors and for the price, smoothness and durability (so far).

Love the diy!! How did u mount the motors to the arms?

Thanks! 2 holes in each arm with 2 screws through them to the motors with a soft mount squished to form a flat platform for the motor base. I drilled the holes way wider than usual in order to epoxy-fy the drilled hole edges to reinforce it and filled the weakened carbon area with more epoxy. the point of breakage when one happened was at the middle of the arm, so the efforts were kinda successful
