Get that everywhere I go with this Hexa, especially they aren't sure what it is. You tell them that it actually fly and with a camera, get really to answer questions. The best thing about it is, it's the only flying cam so far, got not only guys' attention, but I have 6 girls come up and talk to me. Finally, a flying cam that lures girls attention also.

I can spent hours answering girls' question, but no patience for guys, LOL.

Jason, I love this frame; And I rarely use that word.

How much did you say that frame weights? 5lb or 6lb?

I will get a scale tomorrow and give you guys a accurate weight. Around 5lb without up blade guard and blade guard adds 15oz.

Today, when I was watching one of the videos, all the dust was being blown around, almost as if a UFO was landing. It looks majestic :-)

I see it all the time.
If you did you would know that G10 is not used on high end frames and CF is not gonna have the probloems you claim.
Looks like your main target audience is guys who are new to the hobby and do not know alot about this stuff.
You really should list the weight of the frame or people will know you are hiding those #'s cus its heavy.
I will guess over 5lbs.

At 21lb, with blade guards and camera mount and canon t2i, two 5,000 mah 6s, flight time is around 8 mins.

We have test flown total weight up to 36lbs.

I bet with a Sony 5Nex (lighter than Canon) and smaller camera mount and 8,000 mah, can go up to 15 min.
