Man, I remember when the first Leader came out and everyone was talking about it. What an awesome build, I love the RCINPOWER motors. They look so good in pink and blue.

haha sometimes they weight the motors with the motor wires cut off so maybe 6.5g is with a shorter motor wire? they could be lying too because I don't think motor wires so that heavy. I have a set of 1104/7500Kv motors too but mine are not really rated for 3s 3" :( glad it works well for you though! 2" with 4s sounds like a lot of fun, big power in a small quad!

RACINPOWER I checked it on many places 2years ago.... bcus I felt it was not correct but it is a copy of copy of document/description problem... typical chinese marketing blabla :) Now somewhere it is 6,4g somewhere 8,9g...confusing.. (cable is half gram 8,9vs9,5g)
yea 1104/7500 is good for 2" or 2,5" and not the best for 3"... 1204 iflight/hobbymodel 5-6g are more better for 4S 5000KV for 3S 6000KV plus new developed propeller (for toothpick) Hurrican 3018 HQ 3015/3020... light and good balance of prop!
it is only toy and enjoy...build enjoy rebuild enjoy crash.... put it into dustbin :)

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
