Includes the Frame you see on the 3DR website (including hardware) and 3 spare arme. Selling for $85 (buyer pays domestic shipping). I have flown the frame about 10 times but want something better…Continue
"It's hard to control the release of new development hardware. Look at the 787....2 years.
If it's not right the first time it's released there will be a LOT more unhappy people commenting than there are now cause it's late."
"Also, since it is a packaged unit with an integrated shell it would be neat to contain the motor wires within the structure of the arms somehow rather than the wires being zip tied to the outsied. Just some constructive critisism."
"My personal opinion is that it takes the y out of diy drones but I think it's a really neat looking copter and If I was just getting into the hobby I'd probably seriously consider it. I like frames where I have a lot more room to…"
"Are you able to fly it confidently line of site without the fpv? It's easier when your first learning fpv to have someone takeoff for you and get you to a safe altitude to fly and to also spot you and keep an eye on it just incase you get into…"
