another Mini Quadcopter

This micro quadcopter is smaller enough to fly in my room. This micro quad's flight time is about 10 mins. I bought everything from Hobbyking including the frame to make sure everything is working, before I do any crazy customization. Although it might cost more, but by saving money on something that doesn't work, doesn't sound like a good deal to me either. Later on I DIY a much lighter frame using fibre glass rods and styrene sheets, so I have more room to carry a FPV system and GPS module in the future.
Build log:

flight Video:
Diy Micro Quadcopter Frame - Attempt #2 - Success! :-) (2 min 0 sec)

Parts I used:

Flight controller: Arduino Nano + GY80 (and sometimes KK2.0)
Prop: 5030
Motor: 18-11 2000kv Brushless Outrunner (10g)
Battery: 950mah 2S
I will keep updating my project post on my blog.

Pretty cool. I like the frame. Looks great!
I was gonna make a small 250mm frame out of wood but its more bother than its worth considering i can get a good frame from hobby king for $9.00 usd. My main problem is sizing motors... Everything i buy seems to be too small lol
