Hey guys, I'm looking for a multi-copter that can fold up nicely for transport. This one caught my eye because it looks super cool, the arms can fold up, and it has a reasonably priced camera mount.

I've been looking at the XAircraft Quad that has the folding arms, and I like it because the legs can be removed. Downside is, it's a Quad, so the props will always be in the video frame. This Tri has a nice wide front viewing area.

But my question is, can the legs be removed? I'd like to be able to pull the legs off it, fold the arms, remove the props, and stick it in a bag or something that's easy to carry. I can't tell from the pictures if those legs are glued to the main frame.

Any reason I couldn't keep it simple and fly this as a Y4? I've never built a multi-rotor with stacked props like this one, do you use the same props top & bottom, or does the bottom one have more pitch because the air is already moving at speed?
