Do you know the weight of the aluminium top part (the canopy) with its screws and standoffs? Without the carbon base frame. Thanks!

No idea I'm afraid & I'm not planning to pull it apart to rebuild it quite yet!

I'm trying to design my first build and I am thinking about putting these 1408 4100kv motors on the 145mm GEPRC frame. (http://geprc.com/product/geprc-gep-gr1408-4100kv/). I also want to run the runcam split 2 with a 850mAh 4S battery. I'm assuming those motors would give me more punch power, but I do not know as I have never built a quad yet. Is this possible/would it be worth it?

I'm no expert on 3" builds, but I think the consensus is that 14xx is more 4" territory than 3", unless you want to run really heavy/aggressive 3" props (which might give you more punch, but wouldn't necessarily fly as smooth nor as long). These 1306/4000 certainly aren't lacking in punch (

) while still getting a good 5 minutes on an 850 4S - & apparently these Emax ones aren't even considered that good anymore as 13xx motors go!

Hmmm, i'll take your word for it. Those 1306/4000 look very nice and i'll probably run them now. Thanks!

I was tempted to build that frame. It's pretty unique and GEPRC makes a quality frame for the price.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, especially considering the pricepoint. I'm still amazed that a 36mm stack with bags of spacing between the boards fits in so easily, it really was a breeze to build.

Yep, it looks to have plenty of space. It would probably be a very good candidate for the Runcam Split.

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
