jab -

Thanks for posting your video! I definitely wanted to see it prior to buying one of those frames. Now I definitely want one.

I noticed that you are not using the battery mounting plate, obviously because you don't have to! I have built a Cinestar-ish frame with the batteries on top, and while it flies well, when I carry it around (from my workroom to my backyard) it wants to flip - because all the weight is on the top!

Do you have a similar tendency on your build?

Anyway - looks like that bird has quite a bit of 'punch' when you goose the throttle! It looks like it would be fun to fly - with OR without a camera. Do you plan on mounting a camera?

Thanks again for posting the video. I think sometimes folks forget that it is kinda a PITA to take/post a video.
