This frame is super lightweight and responsive. Love the way it flies. I originally had a CL racing F4 with spedix escs and a set of xNova 2206 2450's. Now upgraded with a newer style fc and 4 in 1 combo from kamikaze. Also upgraded the xNova motors to the larger 2207 2600kv version. Should be interesting.

Now that's a premium build. How does it perform? What goggles are you using with that 16:9 cam?

@whiffles very smooth! Did the maiden today with some T5040 cyclones. Very Snappy and the higher kv with these motors make up for some top end. A very good freestyle frame.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g.
