Looks nice. If you want a really light Funbat for comparison, build it out of Dollar Tree Foamboard with the paper removed and covered with packing tape.

Cool idea, using cardboard. Looks like it works just as well.

I'm not sure that's bright enough
What power set up are you running on her? Any video?
I'm just finishing two 600mm w/span KFm-4 FB's. That will make 6 that I've made although one of the new ones will be just a bare airframe for my brother. My one will have a 4S set up with the Micro Dan 2600kv motor. Should have enough grunt

Cromer I believe is using the guts out of a UM Stryker.
I have a FB with a MicroDan 2410-2700kv on 4s it's ballistic.

That's what I'm hoping for. What prop are you running on your MD set up?
