What flight controller does it use? It looks like a nice setup. Those are foldable too which is a plus.

$238 The "Rabbit" with "Carefree"
3 axis gyro, 3 axis accel, ultrasonic height included - USB firmware upgradeable
http://www.goodluckbuy.com/ifly-4-co...ontroller.html

Thinking about it for my #2 quad, after a Gaui with GU344. Want heavier lift and more stability to use a GoPro. I've flown a GoPro on the Gaui (with 3S's), and it just seems to fly awkwardly. Gave up and am flying a Sony Webbie (with lower profile) on it.

Now it costs $250, without camera mount and shipping cost.
There are similar products on GLB, but we improved the material it used to provide better performance to customers.

Of course, you can try it on GLB or some other place where people said it's much cheaper there, but the quality is not guaranteed also.

If someone interested in distributor, send me email:idea-fly1@hotmail.com, thanks for your attention.

With a grain of salt, Our FC is little better than rabbit, though we're late-comers. time will tells it.

I have built a quad using this frame and found that the props are way to close to the booms causing stability issues with a WKM FCB. I also found that the motors get to hot because they sit in those cups and do not get enough air flow over them.
I would not recommend this frame.

Sir, to be honest here, we did made some frames and sold them out to places like GLB, and we heard that some other people assembled with poor motors and FCs then resell to market, now we're not going that direction anymore, if you're the one who has been hurt by those poor products before, i will give you some discount in order to compensate annd regain your confidence to IDEA-FLY. sincerely!!!
