Looks cool! How heavy is super light?

69g before batteries!

That's pretty light ! But why so short flight times ? only around 3 minutes.. my leader 120 flies around 5 mins on 550mah 2S, but it's true that i didn't see many similar performing builds to leader :) Did you tried also bigger 2s lipo ?

I think these were rubbish old batteries :smile: I don't have any 2s lipos with xt30 so no.
yeah the leader 120 is one of the legends of the micro world...once they fixed the first batch with the bad motors.

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