Thumbs up Lightweight 250 pro dfc

A tad under 320 grams, with canopy and battery.
The biggest loss was the servos.
I used ds76's and a ds76t for a loss of 26 grams.
I switched the micro beast and sat for the 7200 for a loss of 8 grams.

Makes a BIG difference, there is no more heavy disk, it feels quite light now, and flies like my other helis, I think I can finally enjoy this bird now. Only negative is the questionable reliability of the eflite servos, but I can't find any even close to that weight in the 450 class that might be any better. I'll take the calculated risk.

I have a few more things that I will do that will drop another 15 grams once all done.
1. switch ar7200 for zyx-s/sat ( weighs just 13.9 grams with sat and adapter cable)
2. switch blue align for talon 15 once released (loss of 6 to 8 grams)
3. carbon boom/ pf canopy ( loss of 2 to 3 grams)
4. trim servo wires (2 to 3 grams)
