I'm admittedly bias, but I would not buy that.
Beyond my bias though, you'll have to rely on DJI to continue to manufacture those exact arms if you ever want to replace one a TBS frame. Why the frame does not include arms with the original purchase of the frame plates is also a bit strange to me. Seems 'cheap' to me IMHO that they would not be included...so for $75 you only get to frame plates and mounting hardware?!?

Just buy lots of arms, they only cost 4 USD a piece after all. Stock up on them. I ordered the TBS plates and a set of 4 arms a while ago, should be here next week. I can't wait to put it together, I hope it flies better than the HT-FPV frame. For me it was absolutely unusable.

As for why people dislike these guys, I don't know. Something about NYC. Whatever. As for the frame being an imitation, that's just nonsense. There are only so many ways you can make a spider-style quad body and anyone who doesn't make a "tail" area for using a battery as a counter-weight is absolutely nuts. And it also has a built-in voltage sensor, power distribution for all ESCs and an extra FPV camera. So there are things on it that the HT-FPV just doesn't have.

It looks rather nice But is a bit on the pricey side though.

Wonder how good it will handle?

Post up some pics once you get her all built up

I'll definitely post my impressions of it later here, if it works for me or not.

As for the HT-FPV frame, a lot of people use it and enjoy it quite a bit. But I just couldn't get it to behave well, I always had issues with the YAW when used together with pitch and roll, or when going fast. And I tried lots of different sets of hardware. Maybe you'll have better luck than me.

That is a good idea , i think i will try one out..
