James Hapurona says:

I got merica frame

Ryan Harney says:

You want the best you gotta pay $US.

Casey Dimmitt says:

Stu, love the new look, but please add some carpet or something to suck up all that echo

J Renwick says:

Really nice frame. Can’t wait to build one.
Working with 2.5 inches is nothing new for me….

DerClaudius says:

What’s up with the phallic cactus on the left?

anders larsen says:

Nice Looking frame.. but can it take a hit?

jwtfpv says:

Can you do a video specifically on the antenna connector? Why is it better than an SMA?

schlonald says:

Ooh Mr. Steele special edition Taranis?

Trey Weaver says:

How long will the motors last? Emax does not recommend the 7500KV motors for 3s batteries. The 6000KV motors already get really hot with 3s.

RC Surf says:

looks good , i want one

Hyss says:

So buy the BNF or the frame and the same parts? I think the parts and frame come to £170-180, which is about £250.

ERKARK Gallifrey says:

small but fast & agile with great endurance

Bob Rice says:

Nice review Stu, when you going to do a bargain price Micro Drone build up…

Breck Lietz says:

These little quads are gaining popularity!!

John Bruno says:

This sweet little ripper is going to rock the indoor tracks!
As Always, Thanks so much for the great review!

BASSstarlet says:

Use a decent mic FFS!

slinkyfpv says:

Any plans for dealing with the sound reverb in the future?

124 Hobbies ANTS says:

I’ve never heard ‘It looks choice’ before in nz.

Wolf says:

SHOW US YOUR 12 ICHES (Drone)!!!!!

EchobeeFPV says:

The fact all the parts are less expensive opens the hobby up to more pilots . I really like the way they are moving forward. You can now get higher quality components for a lesser price. I really like the new studio and the new format of dual reviews released back to back. Good on ya Stu !!

Carve says:

Is it xt30 or 60?

Benjamin Baril says:

lmfao, I once went to a convenience store and outside was a guy on (likely multiple) drugs.

He said one of the most memorable things I’ve ever heard while talking about his, erm, equipment.

“Yeah, man, I got 4 inches; 2 inches in, 2 inches out!”

eVolvE FPV says:

Don’t be sad Stew, small but a crazy mafk 😉

UAVfutures says:

What is the best thing you can do with 2 and a half inches?? lol link to the pro version – also part 2 is uploading now, should be live in about 4 hours time thanks to the Australian internet.

Yozora nStuff says:

Hahahah the beginning got me

mshane86 says:

Why are the props backwards?

Richard Lothian says:

Just the frame for me, definitely going to source and build this little Gem. Quite on the up side for price for the BNF,  though I feel the frame is actually very reasonable, thus me gonna buy two.

Zsavage1 says:

I’m liking my BabyHawk R with the 2.5 arm upgrade.. on 4s 🙂

Archer FPV says:

I used to say all you need is 3 inches. Now I’m wanting to cut off half an inch. Lol.

niz76 says:

I built mine with decent components (comparable to CMW $285 option) and it came out to about $193 for everything (not including shipping). Frame $32, Sunnysky 1106 6500kv $50, spedix 20a esc $30, Omnibus nano fc $30, vtx03 $13, receiver $13, Foxeer micro arrow $20, Gemfan 2540 props $5.

Ted Edwards says:

I think you should do a cheap as possible build on the empty frame.

Thomas Lindstaedt says:

Ohhhhhh my goodness, it took me longer than it should have XD that was great!!!

Fab Crashman says:

nice !!

kulagabe says:

I think your studio needs some sound dampening. I think it sounds worse than the last place. Anyway love the vids but hate the echo in the audio. Maybe try a lav Mic. The closer you can get the Mic to your face the better your audio will sound.


Live ur videos man hope to be where ur at some day

Richard Lothian says:

That is a mad looking frame, looks sick. Micro is the best, specially when you are ripping around car parks. Would love to see that frame design for a 4 for five inch.
