    Excellent Frame - So Close to Exactly Right
    Yes I will buy more of these as my 2 1/2" micro fleet grows, all my micro racers will be this Aeolus 2.5 inch

    Durability = absolutely top notch
    Price = totally affordable, great price

    The only problem (manageable problem) is the canopy.
    - 1st off it can be very confusing to buy the proper canopy by looking at the web site, the pictures are small and not much explanation. My initial purchase was 2 frames and of course I got the wrong canopy. Call and talk to someone to make sure you get it right the 1st time, I should have.
    - After I got the correct canopy (Mini w/ MicroCam Pod) I had to make quite a few modifications to the canopy to make it work. 2 1/2" props (GemFan 2540 Flash) won't fit, have to dremel away material at the front to fit them. There really is no hole your dipole antenna will fit through, had to dremel away material. There is no way to see the VTX readout, had to make a hole in the top of the canopy. Several other small areas of the canopy had to be dremeled out for motor wires and to access the VTX button.
    - My biggest existing problem is I can't get any camera tilt. Connector on the RunCam Micro Swift 2 is hitting the VTX board on the HGLRC stack. The pod needs to be stretched forward just slightly to allow decent camera tilt.

    Again, with a little work, this frame is really awesome! I will buy more, just hoping to figure out a better canopy solution that won't require as much work to be usable.
