Scored a japalura frame and ESCs on sale, had the other parts on hand. Might update motors to the oomph 1407s eventually.
Aiming for a dry weight of 180g and 3s HV lipo to get approx 5:1 thrust to weight ratio.

Build day 1: wiring
FC Wiring all done, except for motors and ESCs. All tested and good, bf setup as much as possible. Waiting on escs and frame, but looks like on track to hit almost exactly 180g.

Day 2
Got a swift 2 instead, dropped the minimosd. Frame came in and got weights on everything and assembled frame
