Catalyst Machineworks Merica: the finest racecraft ever manufactured. Never have I experienced incredibly fast speeds as smooth as freestyle builds. Wow. All of the great stuff people are saying about this frame is dead on. The Multicopter Builders Primo 2207 2650kv are super efficient for their power too; you can easily run them for 4 minutes on regular flying and well over 2 minutes when hauling it. The Azure props are super smooth and have incredible acceleration. This is by far my favorite setup for racing I’ve ever flown.
