I did make a post about them a few months back, but i think I can forgive you for missing it!

it's also had some changes since then, it's now running an EMAX RS1606 4000kv motor with a 5x3 propeller and I've moved up to a 60a miniquad ESC. It now weighs about 110g ready to fly, but has more power, and can be held at full power for a bit longer before the motor blows. (it's now pretty well impossible to blow the motor, because it would be so far out of sight by that point!)

it really is so much fun to fly, and is just completely insane!

planemad man I looked back for a post on it, but somehow I missed it But, Thanks for the updated info
Going to clear off my Building Board I built my first Round RC Model back in 1986 I called it a RFO (Round Flying Object)!
It was Nitro Powered, that was long before Electric RC Models were practicable!
