    I just want to let you know, no other build I’ve ever done has lasted as long as this one has flying around at The Underground parking garage(besides the 1S Pixel). Usually they last no more than a couple of trips but this one has been there like 10 times now and survived at least 8-10 good crashes into concrete. Given my track record that’s pretty amazing.

    Hands down , the best 3″ frame out there. Mine it crazy fast and nimble running 1507 4100kv motors. I love having options and the SX3U has got it, with 20×20 fc or a full size 30×30 fc mounting holes.If you’re looking for a tough as nails 3″ frame look no further!!!

  3. Tornado Girl FPV (Mary Beth)

    This is my favorite 3″ frame. I love the 4mm body for 1407, and the design has lots of room for my electronics, no squishing stuff in. I thought it would feel heavy, but it doesn’t. I’ve had about 6 prior 3″ frames and this is the best one. I will stick with BQE.

    OK I don’t like their other 3″ the 3AF it seems a bit limited and oddly tight, This 3″ however is prefect. Everyone is all toothpick happy these days but this SX3u is just a SMALL version of an excellent 5″ basher. Alls I could want more would be replaceable arms. but at $45USD I’m good . Its an awesome frame . ( EXCEPT THE CAMERA Holder )
