No screws left over on this one. Not a whole ton of spare ones if you put everything back. I am amazed how well this is holding up. 8 flights so far by both me and my boss (brought it to work because I knew he would like it as well) and all manner of crashes (one eve from hitting the 12ft ceiling and falling to the floor!) and the only thing broken is the extra bit of plastic behind the screw that holds one side of the canopy on. I am amazed with this little thing!

 

Next up is figuring out how much battery I can strap to this to extend flight times (and getting a second, and possibly a third one as well).

You are hooked!! Wink they do take some crashes-where a lot of people go wrong when in a crash or getting into trouble they do not turn the throttle off and that is when most of the damage is done-have fun,to me always better to buy a new one keep the old ones for spares.

Ah, I can see how not killing the throttle would do it. My first instinct when things start going wrong is to kill the throttle, so that seems to be helping. Did a few little tests and if the online places aren't lieing about cell weights and protection board weigh I think 300-400mah should be doable without too much modification.

Leave most of those parts off and you can easily strap on a bigger battery for longer flight times... I've taken off 12grams of the original 38grams so far... thinking of attaching two 240mAh batteries in parallel, which will still be under the original weight but with 480mAh instead of 150mAh :-)

So much fun these little things and like you I'm amazed how durable they are... with all the bits taken off I've crashed so many times, motors popping out, smashing into walls sideways... I don't know what I'd have to do to write it off, perhaps fly into a moving truck or a fast spinning ceiling fan!?
