    I am using a DJI E300 Propulsion kit in a Dex shell with NAZA Lite FC, no GPS, Phantom 1.1.1 transmitter and receiver. AUW was 970g.
    Here is my first flight with no camera attached. Still have a lot of work to do.

    Just some cheap and easy adjustable supports for leveling.
    I have not yet decided how or if I will add landing struts. With the GoPro in it's housing and no gimbal, I like to launch from a plastic bucket and hand catch for landing.
    Once I add the gimbal, I will certainly need something. Might use CF rods under the motors like I had on my Phantom.
