This was my very first build just over a year ago. I can remember being intimidated with the soldering even with the large spaced out pads.

The S500 frame has more than just a few upgrades in the last year. Sunnysky 3108, 720kv motors, 11'' prop, T style landing gear and the SteadyGo 3 axis gimbal being a few.

Some earlier footage with the Walkera G2D.

First flight with the Tiny2.
