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.

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.

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..
