At least someone finally answered the question of flight time & the answer is abysmal.  As for the lifetime of the brushed motors, we'll never know, but it can't be good.  He could have made a custom radio instead of using the huge breakout board.  Too bad ARM chips still don't come in smaller packages.  You're still stuck with 8 bit microcontrollers in smaller packages.  The requirement for an 8 pin JTAG connector really kills ARM.  Certainly a lot of ways to make a smaller board.

Awesome.  A massive number of people in Asia don't have big back yards or easy access to flying fields for regular sized quads and planes.  a micro quad like this would be as popular (if not more) as those $20 indoor helis you see everywhere.

I think this 5 years old quadcopter is the smallest and lightest one:

I saw a rather small quadcopter that students at MIT made, it is about the same size as the one in this post.
