I had 2 purple and 1 silver 4" Armattan Japaluras and wanted one in a different color so I sent a set of purple braces to "Pig" on RCGroups and had them stripped and then anodized in blue. I removed the motors from one of the purple builds and replaced them with blue RotorGeeks 1407-4000kv motors. I also 3D printed a blue threaded HS1177 camera cases in PLA+ to complete the full blue look. It weighs 184.7 grams without a battery and it's a rocket with the 4000kv motors, 4S 1000mAh 70c graphene pack and the HQ 4X4.3X3 V1S props. The motors barely get warm during a hard, fast flight. With DAL T4045v2 props the motors get very hot in less than a minute so I wouldn't recommend them.

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

I've personally seen this quad and the pictures don't do it justice.

Great color coordination! How much did the anodizing cost?

Thank you very much. It was more or less a trade, I 3D printed a few items for him in exchange for the anodizing. I'm sending the purple braces that were on it to him to get anodized orange so I can replace the silver ones on another Japalura.

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..
