Sorry to go a bit off topic but if the gov bring in the over 250gms registration system light weight 4" quads will be possible but I very much doubt 5" will be possible. So there may be alternative reasons to go smaller!

Power to weight ratio is even better on a micro, means you are more agile and the inertia isn't there so you can really turn on a dime and do stupid things that would make your nervous on a 220.

Hey, each to their own though, but try it before you dismiss it.

Flight time is all about what you do - I get 3 mins normally from a 4s 1300 on a Darkmax doing silly, but if I go sensible on a micro I can get 6 mins out of a 450mah 2s !!!  Micro's twice as good ;)

Could the 3" machine be the middle ground for performance/power/flight time.  I think I have one on the way but it's been stuck in cleaning since december... so I don't know yet

(always appreciate you replying in both YouTube and here - nice to keep the thread going in both locations)

  Those props dont look the best to me...?

Im not a big fan of these micro quads TBH, they dont seem to have the performance or the endurance, so I dont get why you would need one..?..Its too big for indoors soooo?

 A 220mm size seems the ideal size to me. I mean even a 220mm quad is pretty small really. Im still blown away I can fly around for 15 mins on a 3S Lipo with my Darkmax...Ok, Im not nailing it around the sky, but even so, that's still pretty good considering.
  It's all about power to weight ratio, and these 220mm quads seem to be the sweet spot.

 Im using the supplied props that came with the Darkmax, if you compare them to these tiny white ones, it's easy to see the difference in terms of blade shape and pitch.  I have a box of King Kong's 50/40s x 3, and they are crap in terms of blade shape / pitch, they are also way too soft.

I wonder if going 4S would counteract the extra weight or will it as with the larger 3S combo actually produce diminished returns.

Yes, I'm afraid this will require a part 2 as I didn't really get the best from this quad on my first attempt.  It's quite a premium little micro (with a price to match) with an f4 board, a micro CCD camera, and a TBS Unify VTX all squished in there.

! No longer available

So a few issue here - mainly on the receiver end of things.  I might just have a duff XM - anyone flying them decent distances - but I'll swap out for an XM+.  It flew very differently with the heavier lipo - seems that the lighter the better.  Given that this should run on 4s, it's hard to imagine getting a 4s where the extra power will be enough to get over the extra weight it adds.

So, mostly - inconclusive.  I'll fix the stuff, and go out and try again.

I actually do realise that FAA or for that matter any other country outside the current EU have no enforcement here. I use their regs as a possible template that the DfT may adopt. In the USA there are current legal battles between Federal and State legislatures, we won’t have that issue. However, even when we leave the EU we will still be subject to EASA regulation regarding air traffic. The purpose of this thread is to illustrate the lack of clarity from the DfT, CAA, BMFA etc regarding the definition of a Drone. There is no doubt in my mind that this country will tag onto the EU and include any UAV and UASV.

A Vortex 230 Mojo for a magazine review

On a side note, this is quite interesting as I didn't know Horizon partnered with IRC to create a BNF Vortex - so Spectrum owners are well catered for.  Do I have a Spectrum radio.... no, receiver swap it is then.

I think the biggest issue is you cannot just force "drones" to have transponders without making all air traffic have the same kind of system.

UK CAA is going to go down the fully integrated airspace one day but its not yet. 

FAA rules don't apply to anything in the UK.

Personally I wouldn't worry to much about new rules but if anything we may find out around April or just before.
