Building with a 16x16mm stack made me realize how small it is. A fine tip for your soldering iron is a must.

Careful, the ESC has battery voltage on the corner holes, do not use metal screws. I tried and burnt an ESC.

Love the Ascent frame, the design is quite brilliant. I wish the canopy would have something to hold a receiver instead of a square hole for the HGLRC vtx.

After a day of flying, an arm is broken in a routine crash. The two sets of holes to support different motors and the big hole for the motor shaft don't leave much material where motor mount meets an arm. Definitely a weak spot. A good thing is that Dmitry at FlexRC is upgrading the carbon and frame design to strengthen the frame.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
