Well its that time again…
Time to get a new build under way.
- I’m going to build a light weight, medium range, 3inch.
- I’m aiming to get the AUW (All Up Weight) under 250 grams, with good flight times.
- I’m looking for a medium range cruiser more than a freestyle build (even though it will probably freestyle just fine).
Getting the AUW under 250 grams shouldn’t be too difficult if I choose my parts carefully and try to avoid 3D printed parts, as they add more weight than you think.

This is just my own build, its priced at roughly £260 and should weight somewhere around 210g AUW.
As long as it comes under 250g then I’m happy.
But lighter the better… less weight = longer flight times.
You could build this for cheaper and lighter by changing out a couple of parts.
I’ll be posting part pictures with why I picked them, build pictures and notes.
Please feel free to comment, make suggests (its too late the change the parts, I have most of them now).
Lets see how this build goes…
