Tooth Fairy - without the precious metals. Target weight of 333g AUW when equipped with an 850mAh 4S battery. This thing is an absolute rocket ship, provided I keep it out of trees.

Spedix IS100 stack is the heart of this build, and also why the budget stayed brilliantly on track - it's possible to build one of these for $165 catching the right sales, which is absolutely insane for how good this performs.

I would recommend moving to NK2204 or newest generation Hyperlite 2205's, and soldering in an AXII Antenna onto the Spedix VTX if you're looking to make this a serious racing build, but those are all really minor adjustments. Similarly, if you can find the IS100 stack base (or want to run the HGLRC F440), the HGLRC or Aomway TX004 are great choices paired with an XSR-E or R-XSR Receiver, allowing you full smart audio control via LUA scripts.
The Spedix IS100 DOES require you to solder bridge in four spots if you're using this configuration (run SBUS to Inverted RX1, run 5V to RX Input Voltage, run 5V to the VTX output, and I recommend running VBAT to the camera) - with that all sorted, it's great stuff.

The Diatone GT-M200 is a racing/freestyle frame that features an aluminum alloy cage and 6mm replaceable arms. The goal of this build was to balance price, features and quality.

Additionally with BLHeli_32 it supports the DSHOT1200 motor protocol and custom startup music. This also..
