    ... and you're still piss'n off the birds over there

    Five inch frames just look almost clunky anymore after messing with 2 and 3 inch quads more. Definitely more floaty and slower reactions.

    I did see a little jello on the HD cam when in an aggressive throttle push. Evidently had seen it when catching it out of a turn by your comments.

    Very nice setup btw ... the video quality is excellent too anymore.

    Another appreciated follow up Dutch and thank you again

  5. Thanks brother :) Yes.. could definately do with a bit more tuning this one..
    Strangly unpopular / unknown this quad, but well.. I don't have a steak in it..

    Yes! The Runcam 3 still works well doesn't it (and better weather helps)..
    BIRDS! :D
