First HD build and wanted to produce something that could be used in a variety of scenarios including free style, high speed gaps, pleasure cruising and mid-range adventures; basically a jackknife. Ultimately settled on the light but strong CM Banggod lite frame powered by T-Motor Pacer V2's which were selected for smooth response coupled with reasonably high efficiency. In terms of the receiver, I went with the IRC Atto Duo to maximize range and minimize likelihood of failsafes. Antenna upgraded to the Maple 'Long' antenna with similar intention of maximizing range / reception.

Weight came in at 355g.
