... 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 ...you 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
Fly like your mad at it.

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!
