S500 Quadcopter frame review

Hey guys, this is my first post here. I haven't seen any reviews for my new quadcopter frame. So here it goes....
I really like this frame, it is VERY strong! In comparison to the other DJI clone frames, this one is of very high quality, and if you get the integrated version, you get the ability to solder your XT60 or T connectors directly to the bottom plate. You also get carbon rods impregnated into the arms, I have heard that some of the cheaper (glass fibre) versions not having the carbon rods in the arms.

All up it is easy to build, and the legs provided are strong, they are a bit floppy when twisting the frame on a flat surface, but they are easy to land on.

The only complaint I have with the frame is that it doesnt have another mounting tray for FPV/camera gear. There are plenty of holes at the front to mount a plate to the frame, but it seems to be a little floppy when I put my GoPro mount on there.

P.S. *****This is NOT the Hobbyking S500 frame, this one came from Ebay*****
