In the general marketplace we all suffer considerable disappointment from vendors. It is not uncommon to pretend poor quality is unavoidable and crap support is our gift horse. Most are immune to the flood of products, many being perpetually locked in rookie status but strong with marketing and little else. Other noise originates from overseas actors obsessed with price point commodities. Retail companies release too soon, and often broken, where "first edition" is synonymous with pariah status.

It took a while, but our drones are dialed in and we have a pleasant fleet that is easy to maintain. We are fortunate to have the skills and means to design and cut frames, but so can you (talk to Nick as CNC Madness, take our designs). We are also fortunate to have a good budget. In the end our designs and builds are quite nice. Have a look, but also check out our design principles.
The first sub-250 gram 2" and 2.5" high performance HD freestyle drone using mostly M3 hardware and running top-mount or underslung battery for over 700 possible frame combinations.
Before all the PCB HD FPV hybrids existed (like the Split) we built the Moonshot. At the time we knew HD capture was going to scale down very soon, and we were right. We were still more than a year ahead of the camera technology. No worry, we took an insanely fast 3" drone and flew it nonetheless. The Moonshot delivered lines so mind bending our brains were oozing out the nose.
Expect to hover 10-20a and we have recorded punch out draw at 60-80A.
We have more frames and stuff, but that is enough for now.
