"Do you have any video footage from the onboard camera? Looks like the lower section where the camera is mounted sways a lot during accel/decel and direction changes. Almost like a pendulum. Cool concept none the less."

"I like the hexa frame. Nice design but a bit pricy for a 250 size frame. I have a nighthawk 250 with cc3d, motors, esc, and props for $160. Frame is carbon fiber and very durable."
