Taking some spare parts and buying more "spare parts" and making a flying "spare", aka drone #4.

Nearly complete, just have to trim frsky antennas and direct solder the vtx antenna after a few shake down flights.

227g AUW with Turnigy 850mah 3s. I think I can knock another 15-16g out of it.

A friend of mine is flying frame, but added on these prop guards: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1337078 Saves him some grief when flying in the parking garage.
