Here is the maiden of the V2

Both of mine came out at exactly 4.5oz without bettery!

The V2 is out of stock while the V3 combat version undergoes some changes for final production. Sam is working very hard on this and trust me, its worth the wait!

Sam is working hard on the new version. I started this build thread on the V2 before it was desided to just kit the V3.
So Sam is finalizing the design of the V3 for the first batch. I'll keep you posted.

Equipment is 250-300size outrunner. (Blue wonder type 1500kv is perfect for 2 or 3 cell setups)
10amp esc
3 5 to 9gram servos.
2s or 3s lipos. 350-500mAh

This is a video of my first one.

4oz without battery
1500kv blue wonder swinging GWS 10/6hd prop
3 tpro 5g servos
10amp mystery brand esc
Can't remember if it was 2s 450mah or 3s 500. Probably 2s.

This shows how nice a slow these mini pbf's are in calm conditions.
