Hovership MHQ2 3d printed mini quad

I just finished building one of these mini racing quads and thought I'd share the video of the process. It was way easier than the crazy "inspire one" project.
I am using a naze32 flight controller for this one. This thing is lots of fun and not very expensive to build.

You can find Hovership's build guide here, and the models to print here on thingiverse.

Have any of you printed one of these yourself? I know they are selling the parts but it's more fun to make it yourself.

PART 1 (construction):

PART 2 (flight controller setup and test flight):
3D Printed Mini Racing Quadcopter HOWTO: MHQ2 Part 2 - Configuration and Maiden Flight (5 min 24 sec)

Looks good! Saw yours on thingiverse too. Yup that Inspire 1 project in crazy, and the raising arms are really worth it since you just just lower the gimbal in the first place!

I wrote up this Instructable page for this project too.

It has a bit more detail that is missing from the videos.

I'm new to drone and maybe my question will seem stupid. Is a drone like the MHQ2 can fly sideway? My goal is video shooting.

For sure! Though, it may tilt and without a gimbal you will see the tilt in your video.
