    Interesting component placement!

    Very nice looking. You have the BTU and LED mounted vertically - on a plate or angle piece you added?

    Wow!!! That looks pretty wicked. I like the landing skids and I keep thinking about them but the weight concerns me. I know it's not too bad but I like my current flying times.

    Is that a BATMAN head I see on the top near the battery?

    Again 3D printed they hold the Hitec receiver "boda" antenna's which I often seem to damage when I just tie strap them to things. I may have to move the "horns" to the top plate, I think there current position is upsetting the gimbal sensors.

    All up weight is 2.3kg and I fly with a 4s 6000mah battery, when I do some more flight testing I will post what the flight times are.
