Well here is my 2 cents, this has been my go to machine for the last couple of months. I wasn't a big Hex fan until I flew it once now I am hooked. I was lucky enough to get one of the first preproduction units and have been very happy from day one.
If you have never flown a hex you need too they track so good compared to anything else I have ever flown. The design of the Venom is so simple but works very well, component layout makes building the Venom a snap. Here is a picture of my Cobra 1960 4s machine.

I moved to the quad revo mini hex a few months back and I am so glad I did. Here are my thought
on this frame.
1) For us in the US, can’t beat the domestic shipment. No more paying near $20 shipping to get spares from overseas and you’ll get less down time.
2) The hex was designed very well around the CG/COT on the FC. The battery no longer hangs over the frame. I have damaged several batts due to uneventful landing from my batts hanging off the rear in the past with my previous frame. With my set up on quad revo, my batt balances quite well on the top plate with room to spare. It also balances well with super 2208 2000kv set up.
3) It flies very well. I cannot tell the difference in flight performance over my previous hex frame.
4) The motor mount will fit four screws. I had motor came lose once or twice so I’m all for a wee bit more weight for security.
5) Arms will fit 5 and 6 inch props. I’m still on 5 inch 1960kv cobra 4s but I’m told that the mean green machine with 6045 prop 2208 2000kv flies well and very stable (can’t wait to see that in action).
6) The tilted camera slot was very clever. Who wants to stare at the ground. Tilting the cam up enable you to fly faster. I moved to 25mm HS1177 which I'm very happy with.
Here is my flight on a calm Sunday morning flying by myself with no one to crash into….

I just busted my mobius. I guess after 10s of crashes, can't really complain.

I think it's the board. I need to take the camera apart and see. I've also had the SD card eject with a bunch of good footage on there
