Halloa people

Quite the sexy little bird....I keep thinking I'm gonna upgrade some of my current fleet...but then a new version like this comes out....and I think...should I upgrade parts of the old birds ...or just get a kit like this that has everything I want to upgrade to...already there

that's what I was thinking as well Maybe upgrade the motors on that TransTEC lightning?
Ohw wait.. I'll then allso have to upgrade the ESC's probably.. Maybe a better FPV cam as well?
Before you know it a new Diatone like this costs about the same as upgrading the old quad

Exactly. Looking forward to your flight reviews. Your channel is one of the few that I watch immediately when I get the notification. Always great info and a great video.

I'm on this too. I was wanting to find a good 3" quad without that overly floaty sensation or be outrageously over powered.

Keep 'em coming Dutch .. you have two avid listeners anyway.
Fly like your mad at it.

Interesting .....

Flight time seems to be in the neighborhood of 3-4 minutes ? ... i was watching the meters.

I expected it to be more floaty but I'm impressed with how 5" like it behaved on video anyway.

hmm yeah.. with a heavy foot (which I have) it's 3 minutes tops.. You can feel you don't have the weight of a 5".. but the experience is pretty similar indeed

Not really a video about the Diatone quad this, but if you're looking for lipo's for it...



Allso: I guess that ESC's in the 2019 GT-R is pretty reliable 🙂
