Hey matix,

Thanks for the nice words. I will tell you I was a little disappointed with the HT-FPV frame. I say was because I dis-assembled it after 30 flights to build a TBS Discovery quad. The dislikes were really that the HT-FPV frame is very flexible and seemed to amplify vibration from the NTM motors. I spent a huge amount of time balancing motors and props and still, it had this issue. Frustrating because I like the look, the size and the low profile. The frame is for sale for $50. It does have a 1/16" plywood stiffener glued to the bottom because the camera mount was too flexible for my liking. There is no damage to any frame part except the screws are a little worn.

The TBS Discovery frame is now $5 more ($100 without the voltage regulator) and I think it is much more solid. I have no vibration problems, it has very clean embedded wiring for power and the reciever and the DJI arms are inexpensive and easy to change if needed. I have about 20 flights so far and love it. The ESC's I am using are 25A SimonK flashed customs I bought from "saabguyspg" here on RCGroups.

Cheers - Mark
