Not sure what I was thinking on this one. I was frame shopping on Amazon during Black Friday and I decided to let my daughters each pick out a frame. My youngest chose this. I decided to recycle the parts out of my racer build ( to get it airborne. It actually flys really nice. Im impressed for a super cheap frame. Fit and finish is pretty decent and it went together well.

Been running Emuflight on all my builds recently and this one is no exception. Maiden flight went great. Needs a little tuning, but overall impressed. Much better use of these parts over my racer than just hung on the wall.

More cheap Chinese frame builds to come.

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