Hehe, I wouldn't wonder if your friends bring some rackets to the flight field next time.
A tennis racket would make a good "fly swat"!

Looks great. GLB was selling a simular crappy brushed IR RTF version for $40 shipped.

kapteinkuk can you link to exactly which HK 10A you flashed? I have been flashing the 6A but need just a little more power and the esc to be kind of skinny.

Excellent, thank you! Same ones tc recommended

Hopefully my micro motors will like them better than the 6A on 3s.

All the bits ordered

Was it easy to connect to the ESCs to program them or do you need to be a micro-surgeon?
