Looks like a cool quad. The frame looks good and simple to put together. I've always prefered the look of three bladed props. Makes for a nice, compact design.

If it works as good as it looks, I'd say they have a winner.

Looks like the FC is Snelflights own design as it doesnt look like any FC I have seen. There is a pic of it above. It has true Heading Hold also. I LOVE the frame. I actually bought just a frame for a DIY build also I like it so much. Nice and light too.

Its nice and smoooth. The props are balanced perfect. They are pre balanced at SnelFlight. The ESC's have a real nice throttle response and it is easy to keep it at the same height. Uploading an inside vid now. Will get an outside vid soon. I would say it is a perfect backyard flyer. One of the reasons I like micro Quads/multis so much is I dont have to drive to fly.

Just weighed the prop adapter that comes included with the props and they only weigh 1.3g. The typical prop adapters for these motors weigh 5.5g. That saves over 16g total weight. Gonna order some for my DIY builds. Also gonna order some motors as they are balanced unlike the hextronic motors that vibrate like crazy. So far I am really liking this QP.
