This is an X-Class Racer from TBS. Only 700g but very strong 800mm frame, 4mm bottom plate, 25mm arms
and high quality carbon. There are many mounting holes, so you have much space for electronics. I decide to
install a 8S Engine setup and i am very happy with this new X-Class motors from T-Motor F1000 (new version)
with 510Kv. (If you like to fly 12S setup, same motor with 300Kv is available. My first flight was so much fun:
