looks OK, has all the necessary parts der blinkenlights, yo! binds with my tx sends decent video
CONS
super underpowered feels very flimsy short flight time very sensitive to air currents not that responsive
It came in a nice box, it looks decent and it lights up. it binds, communicates with cleanflight and does all the things a nice micro quadcopter should do.... ...Except fly worth a crap. it's pretty much a paperweight that lights up and makes noise. I'm getting about 90 seconds of flight, and that is hovering, not acro. it hovers at 80% throttle and feels incredibly sluggish and underpowered. the frame is flimsy, and the camera mount was bent right out of the box. I'm going to transfer the guts to a CF 90mm frame and put ladybug props on it, then it should actually fly worth a crap. It's disappointing, because I was really looking forward to having ducted fans.

fits standard pill threads brass, good electrical and thermal properties pin holes for tightening
CONS
Can't use it with 8*7135 boards, too tall.
I bought this as an alternative to soldering my 8*7135 boards into brass pills. It turns out that 8*7135 bards are too tall and the threads won't engage. A warning for new players!

Steel, sturdier than aluminum clicky switch takes common batteries bright
CONS
long and heavy for a AAA light came with no thermal compound under LED GITD button and o-ring don't glow for long sharp edges on tubes and brass ring
A great AAA light, especially since it's made of steel. It's longer and heavier than other AAA lights because of the clicky switch and steel body, but not by much. It weighs 2.2 oz. with a NiMH battery installed. I have no way to measure lumen output accurately, but it's pretty bright. I swapped the LED for an XT-E, and that made it way more floody than it already was, with no discernible hotspot at all. The green O-ring adds a green tinge to the edge of the beam, I may replace iy with a black one if it gets too annoying. The edges of the tubes and the brass ring were fairly sharp, so I smoothed them down with some fine sandpaper.

bright high efficiency small size and wide viewing angle nice CRI
CONS
seems way too yellow to be 5600-6000K very floody when used in AAA-size light
Bought this as an upgrade from an XP-E AAA-side flashlight. Color temperature looks quite a bit warmer than 5600-6000K to me, maybe closer to 4500K. Very wide viewing angle which is good for reflectors but the source size is so much larger than an XP-E that it makes the light very floody, with almost no visible hotspot.
