    Nice build!
    Looks like it flies pretty smooth

    Ordered one myself last week. The Gopro will be strapped on with layerlens straight away!
    Will be pretty interesting to laminate this wing. FPV is not new for me, but laminating is....... Will be interesting to try to laminate this wing with a regular iron for clothes...

    You might havea tough time witha clothes iron. The mini was much more challenging than the z2 to laminate because of the small size. Consider a cheap hobby iron,mine was 10 bux. I laminated 4planes with it so far, it was an excellent investment.
    Get me a Crocodile sandwich. And make it snappy.

    Holy crap that's not cheap. I bought mine at my local hobby shop. Iwould think a trip to eBay would get you something decent for a good price.

    Tearing it up in low res. Following train tracks till my 72mhz corona locks out, ripping along fields as low as I can. Still getting used to its flight characteristics but it flies well for a 1kg bird.
