This was the first quad I started learning to fly in Acro mode with (I was spoiled by DJI stuff when I started getting into flying) and it's seen some rather hard landings, buildings, chainlink fences, lot of upside down landings, and on and on. Surprisingly in good shape considering. I had to tear it down to replace the VTX and ESC's after a short smoked 2 ESC's and my TBS VTX so I cleaned it up and took a few pictures as I wait for parts.

11/17/17. Finished and hover checked in the shop at the office. Can't wait for daylight, she feels great just doing flips and turns in the shop, it's not big enough for someone at my skill lever do do much more than that inside. Pretty happy with how she came out. Didn't spend a bunch of time on aesthetics for this one as it's the one I tend to drive into the ground frequently but she still looks ok.

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