Awesome!! The field is heating up...Align, KDS, Scorpion!!

I'm going to guess, $350-$400 rtf.

It seems like it has its own flight controller, called the MRS. Also a related configuration phone/tablet app.

It says ~300g without lipo. That's pretty impressive for a quad with the canopy IMHO.

Looks like some sort of lipo tray. Like DJI Phantom.

Cantered arms or forward. Similar in design as the Sky Hero Anakin IMHO.

Sounds like it has a 1axis gimbal built in. And OSD and other integration?

I think the bluetooth and app integration will be a great feature. Tuning in the field or at a race is nice.

I missed that weight. that is impressive if true. it looks like it would be heavier with all the metal in the arms and motor mounts.

until we see the price, I still stand by my other comment that it won't be cheap. I'd like to be proven wrong again though!

I wouldn't be surprised if the frame is mainly glass composite with some carbon.

3S Only?

I'm not sure but the ad shows contradictory info. Under ESC's, it says 3s/4s. Then under battery it says 3s.

My guess, it's a typo on the ad and it excepts 3s and 4s. Just a guess though.
