apologies for buying a clone but the original only takes 9mm 11xx motors this bad boy takes 12mm 13xx motors

total weight of build before batteries is 160g

only got to fly one pack so far and the battery lasted more than 5 min and 30 seconds, albeit pretty tame flying.
not bad for stock pids on betaflight 3.5
