The Flip FPV is heavier. My bare bone, frame only, Flip was around 350g +/-. My HT 450 bare frame w/o landing legs is ~240g +/-. This is not surprising as the flip has a much larger center frame.

Wow...pretty impressive flying there. Hmmmm...maybe I need to go try higher kv motors with 8" props vs the lower kv and larger prop setup I have. I've got some 1100kv's not being used...

Bummer....well...you can always do a Flip'n tricopter?

I'd contact them. They're pretty good at replying back when I've e-mailed them. Maybe they'll send you a correct one (I assume you were trying to order the 1000kv ones) at no charge. At least it never hurts to ask. Bummer...

I just finished balancing (horizontally and vertically) some 10" Gemfan carbon filled props. I mounted them to my Flip'n frame with 5mm nuts, not those big, unbalanced spinner nuts. A quick backyard hover flight had it feeling much smoother. I'll try my open field tests again with the 10" 2-blade props and compare to what I was getting with the 10" 3-blade. I'm sure I can sneak out of the house and to the park on New Years day...maybe...

I'm gonna get two extra HT-FPV front arms and try them on the Flip as well. I will borrow the spacers from my HT-FPV. The Flip FPV ones won't be tall enough.
