    Cheers Guys, had a quick test hover last night, no fpv gear, no gopro, but with 2 5000mah 4s packs (430g each) AUW 1.95kg the tank would hover nice at half throttle or a little under. i hooked up my watt meter and then pinned the tank to the floor, it drew somewhere in the region of 8.5A, flight times may be as good as id hoped!!

    Hover test with some larking around, 16 minutes hooked up to just 1 of the 2 5000mah batteries on board, also had gopro on the front. Total weight 2.07kg. replaced 4000mah when i charged my battery. The Tank may even scrape 40min in its leanest flight setup.

    Still to add vtx, 2,4 antenna, board cam, minimOSD. GPS and a dipole.

    More to update when i figure out what i need to write.

    HK order has arrived with LRS receiver and dual voltage regulator.

    Like what you did with the slim Afro's.
    Curious if anyone else has tried these in a similar setup and how well they held up in the long run.
    Also looking foward to seeing the complete version with both batteries in place.
    Good stuff!

    Great write up Benny. Thanks for sharing.

    I've been running ESC's in the arms as well on my MK1. So far so good, but haven't flown in any warm temps yet.

    If you used these motor mounts you'll easily swing a 13" prop
