Cant see the vid till I get home. What I will say is you will NOT crash it to pieces. See how thick that frame is? . I got one for Xmas, but am FAR from being ready to fly something like that I have learned in the sim, although when the weather breaks I will try it out with stability mode. But I still cant fly in acro mode at ALL. But I LOVE the look and feel of this quad. Looking forward to your reviews.

good on you for taking it easy on this quad! What kind of quads Have you flown so far in-real-life by the way?? Practicing in the simm sure helps though
Ghehe yes.. I don't think the base frame will come apart indeed

I have only flown the toy quads. Various Sygma, JJRC, stuff like that. And now the Tiny Whoops. So while I can fly like a nut with the toys on stable mode, whip them thru the air every which way, as soon as stablize is off, I am lost. . I will get it in the sim eventually. Learning coordinated turns on racer quads is a lot tougher than learning them on an airplane. But in the end i know I am going to have a blast.

Yeah.. I can remember struggling to do nice turns with quads I fly mostly bank & jank in planes.. So I didn't use the rudder a whole lot :$
But yep.. putting in a lot of time in the simm Sure helps

If you are having any flight issues, this could be why. I think you need a 4th prop.

Ahhhh, my bad. Watched the video. I am even more excited to own this now after your review. I had everything out today. Looks like I gotta solder my Rx wires to the PMP/SBUS connector to get it plugged into the FC. So thats next on the list for me.

Ah yes.. I actually just used the Connector on the wire-harnass that came with the quad, and pressed the wrires (with metal tabs) into that.. Fiddly connectors those

Halloa rc people

it's been a while sinds I did a video on my GT2, but recently I had to put it on the operating table cause the VTX in mine had died Because I had to rip the quad apart anyway I Allso replaced the flight controller with a V3 version of it..

Link to the FX used: Diatone D-Link F3 flight controller V3

VTX used: Diatone SP3 VTX with OSD (unchanged)

Here is the how & why + before & after:
