    Looks pretty cool and heavily customisable.

    I thought about pledging for that especially as I have a 3d printer so could customise it but I didn't as it's low energy Bluetooth although I do have an ipad mini that would fly it I guess would be good for the kids.

    They look brilliant, I think if I had a 3d printer then I could make a frame and use the flight controller from one of the cheap Hex's like the Walkera Hex or similar for half the price and twice the fun and it would be 2.4Ghz

    Thank you for the link, kickstarter is great to see what new idea's there are out there.

    Haven't got my first quad in the air yet but just designed the frame for a micro h quad based of another design.

    You design it, I'll print it for you. (which only leaves you with the hard work!).

    @plexer I wondered why you posted this...then I had a good look at it. Good spot Ben, 'point 5' they have shorten the distance between the prop and the motor...problem fixed I also see its got another 70meter range! excellent if you converted it to FPV...but I could barely see my X4 at about 30meters range let alone 100meters and I like the option to have anti-flip in extreme mode

    Good luck with your little Quad, what flight controller are you going to use and motors? looks a very sturdy designed frame.

    @pcstru Again you Star, thank you very much for the offer, I will keep you in mind if I get the urge at the moment all (what little I have lately) my time is going on the big Quad, I'm having a rejig and attempting to add a brushless gimbal as a clip on option for when I'm not doing close proximity flying which is keeping me busy.

    hmm there is a huge choice....I would try down the line of the WLToys v959 or some of the smaller Walkera quads but then you will need to purchase a supporting remote....or a kk2.0 is 50.5mm x 50.5mm x 12mm with some small 5-9amp ESC's...not sure on the motors

    But on the HobbyKing.com website it's only £35.52 (when you change currency to GBP)
    Why pay 3x the price? Am I missing something here???

    That version has the antennae attached to the transmitter body I think which means the module is not removeable.

    I got the flysky version from banggood for £53 and it was delivered in 3 days with free shipping.

    You'll pay a hefty delivery charge from Hobbyking on that radio.

    As Ben says, its the early model where you have to cut a wire to attach another module, the later version has the antenna attached to the module and a newer FW I think....but its the best cheap remote out there, you can flash open source FW to it which give it the features that a £300 remote has. Highly recommended
