Only build this if you are looking for specific performance. You already know if you fall in this category.
WARNING: If using large motors 2207 or bigger, there is a much higher risk of fracture. Too much weight at the end of the arms is a high risk. Such a craft will be very powerful but also very advanced to fly. Warning to beginners and intermediates. DO NOT build the best of the best unless you know what you're doing. This is no joke, it is really powerful. Even the light weight 2205 setup is very very powerful.
