The integrated circuit board looks great. Hope to see it fly soon.

nice looking TBS Discovery-ish frame.  Looks nice and solid.. love the use of the DJI arms as it makes for cheap fixes.. and seeing that I cracked my TBS frame crashing into a tree and getting it stuck 100 feet up.. it was pretty easy to fix and get it back in the air.  This frame looks a bit more solid.  Where is the battery supposed to go?  looks like screw holes all around the back-end.. which on the TBS is where I put the batter into the frame.

The battery is at the back. The Freedom frame support up to 6amp batteries 3S or 4S configuration. Slightly bigger than the discovery frame. The top frame also increase the space for components.

Very nice! Is it an expensive process to create the integrated circuit boards? I recently also saw MAXboard here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1703258614/maxrotor-open-source...
