Some of the quad, this time with out the Fuselage and maybe 20 to 30 mph wind! I think there will be much less "Sorry it's to windy to fly"

Finally got her in the air! A couple of noticeable differences w/mods;

1) more thrust from the same electronics
2) quiter/faster but lost a lot of the "woosh"

I'll get some better video on the next flight,as on this one I was keeping her high for obvious "maiden" reasons!

Some stats before the Maiden;

All Up weight..............1396g (49.28oz)
Bird w/o lipos..............1001g (35.36oz)
4s 40c 3000 lipo...........347g (12.32oz)
3s 450 lipo(on bec).........48g (1.6oz)

Thrust as measured in the video and settling a bit = 1464g (51.64oz), the scale read 1530g (53.97oz) at its' peak. Here's a short vid on how I tested it;
