No, just like any other mini as far as setup. Read the threads and find one that matches whatever frame you have.

I ordered a Night Hawk 250...it's cheap enough and plus i had a good experience with www.besthobbymall last time. good people there. I chose Swiss Post for the shipping instead of a fast service like Fedex or UPS, because they give u free shipping with swiss post. Can't beat that!

Afraid that the frame little bit heavy. 185g it's a lot for mini category. All other frame in this category weight about 130g. I think if there was a version with shorter arms for 5 inch prop only it would take off some weight and make this frane to more attractive.

SS Screws look pretty, but add to the weight bit by bit.. switching to nylon or aluminum screws would help its weight.

Appreciate the suggestions, guys! We will do what we can to make adjustments in order to reduce the weight.

The reality is, though, that it comes down to a simple equation. Regarding CF frames, one of the following two options are possible:

1. Lower weight + high cost

or

2. Higher weight + low cost


We all want to "have our cake AND eat it too," and maybe there is a way to achieve this (I hope!)

So, keep the suggestions coming. I'm all ears...

When it says "Carbon/Glass hybrid", what is 100% carbon (if anything), what is glass, and what is a mix (usually glass, plus outer layer CF more for the looks)?

I personally would prefer CF for the arms, and GF for the rest, mainly so that receivers and GPS, FPV etc. don't have issues with radio waves receiving and sending.

We had the same question when we were first made aware of this hybrid material. The glass fiber and carbon fiber threads are interwoven in such a way that each strand is literally a mixture of both, not layer by layer. Hope that helps. As for interference, can you elaborate more on that?
