I love flying my 5inch so much but it can be hard to find a good spot where no one complains. So I have built this 3.5inch as a smaller and quieter alternative that should hopefully allow me to fly in some slightly more populated areas. The axisflying manta3.5 frame I licked is a little heavy but it looked so nice i couldn't resist. The thick arms hopefully should also mean good durability. Decided to run 4s on 3100kv motors for now, power has been plently adequate on this setup. If I ever want more I can upgrade to 6s as the stack is 6s capable.

I have only flown it a bit as I just finished building it. So far I am very happy with it's performance, plenty powerful enough and very smooth. Flight times have been around 4 minutes on an 850mah 4s.

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