I bought one for Christmas. I haven't put it together. I got it along with the kit for the black model.

I just got mine the other day, build is in progress.
It was so cheap that I bought a 2nd one at the same time for spare parts - but I didn't pay attention to the listing and it is a one piece frame - lol.
For the price it seems like a really good deal.
I am building one with a cc3d controller, multistar 2206-2150 motors and afro 12a escs. I got the multistar/afro combo package from HK
The combined length of the esc and motor wires is way too long so I am snipping them and soldering them together, after confirming motor direction, of course.
The multistar motors come with a t-motor style prop mount as well as a standard 5mm bolt on shaft (2cw, 2ccw). the provided clear props use the 5mm shafts but I got some maytech 5x3 carbon fiber t-style props as well.
My fpv gear for this multi shoud be here by Tues - 5gram cam, 1.3 200mw vtx with a smaller antenna - all from Bevrc. I will also mount the mobius on an angled upper deck so that it will generally be pointing straight ahead in forward flight. I have a video switcher too that will let me switch video in flight between the 5gram cam and the mobius

I put mine together over the weekend but on the black frame for now. I plan to switch it over to the clear frame after I get some good flight time in. It flew great for about a minute until I crashed it in the gutter and broke my last ccw prop.
Here's a rundown of what I used.

MMC Microwii FL 32u4
5x3x3 gemfan props
12A Afro ESC
OrX 8 channel RD
HC-06 Bluetooth for tuning
9Xr pro TX

I finally managed 2 trouble free test flights last night. I have never had as much problem with my multirotor gear as I have with this little guy - the multistar/afro combo pack that I bought has been nothing but trouble. I had intermittent chirping/twitching/spazzing on the quad. Turned out 2 of my motors had issues and 1 of the ESCs. I replaced the motors and used a Hobbywing Quattro 4in1 25a esc (quite the overkill but its what I had) and managed the 2 good flights but it was quite porky with that heavy esc and a 2200 3cell.
Got my AFro usb programmer and 2 spare ESCs on the way that should be here by Friday and so hopefully I can do some daytime test flights this weekend.

But I am done with multistar and afro gear - won't buy them again.

Hi thanks for doing this, I have one in my parts bin.

Out of interested who makes the heli in your profile pic. I am a novice at multi rotors but keen to learn.

How did you find the kk board? I have one but I never managed to get it to work properly. The quad was really unstable in both modes.

Would you have a view on a alternative controller? I have a f450 with Naza, that rocks. I would like its stability and I am happy to forgo all the gps stuff

thought I should post an update on my FPV250 Ghost - I have now been having a great time with it.
Cobra 2204-2300 motors
5x3 props
Rotorgeeks 12a escs
CC3D
frsky for control
BEVRC 5g nano cam
BEVRC 200mw 1.3ghz Vtx with smaller BEVRC antenna
I am getting 6:30 of aggressive ff flight with a Nanotech 3S 1300 45C
I also fly 8 minutes with an 1800 3S, and have flown with a 2200 as well

Everything is working great together and it is a nice and nimble little quad for playing in smaller areas that are not suitable for my larger 450 - 680 size multis.
I really like going flying starting at dusk and just keep flying as it gets darker.
I did add a small strip of red leds on the back pointing straight backward so that when it is tail in I definitely know it.
