A very sleek and light weight frame with good consideration for aerodynamic efficiency. Definitely not easy to set up though - cutting and melting holes (crack prevention) in the canopy is quite laborious and easy to mess up. I haven't broken the first canopy yet but I think i'll prepare another in advance to reduce downtime in case of a crash. If there was any way for Bolt to have these holes cut properly from the factory (even for an additional cost) it would be worth it.
Tight build but a very fast and light frame definetly worth getting nemos escs fit perfectly on the arms
