This quadcopter was dismantled on 18.6.2016 after 7 flights. The setup had some flaws (see the Notes sections) and Blackout Super Mini H Quad filled the same original purpose better.

  • This frame ended up not getting much use as Blackout Super Mini H Quad was suitable also for cruising and had a better form factor
  • Outdated and heavy design
  • Bigger 3S or similar 4S battery would likely have been more suitable
    • Used motors are rated for 2-3S
  • Lack of BEC causes one ESC to heat up far too much
  • Long frame causes too easily shadows for signals
