I love my Drone, but yearn for something much hotter that's small and that I can fly with a conventional RC transmitter. FPV, or at least airborne video would be important to me. Now you have me wondering how small I can go. I guess the limit is electronics since you have to lug a certain amount of it along no matter what.

Good luck.

Edit: Anyone care to comment on how compact and light the electronics can be made? The gears are spinning!

Thanks, its not brushless but I have a Walkera UFO #8 and a X-Wing I am selling. They are small. The X-Wing is a little bigger w/ a little bigger motors
