Pros:Folding arms is great. Front mounted gimbal is also very good and surprisingly hard to find on frames.
Cons:No space allowed in the clips for folding the arms, although it's only an issue if you over tighten the nuts.
Metal legs are heavy and are not very well designed. Would recommend making your own longer and lighter legs.
The gimbal controller does not give you access to tune the PID's etc. Not a huge issue as it comes very well balanced, but not as good as Alexmos controllers.
Other Thoughts:Remake of the steadidrone QU4D. Make sure you buy either slim ESC's so they fit in the arms or the quattro 4-in-1 style.
Bottomline:Despite it's shortfalls, it's still a very good frame. Wide front arms and the front mounted gimbal keep the props and all out of frame even on wide angle settings on a GoPro Hero3+. Plenty of room on the top plates to mount all the electronics. If you can modify/3D print your own mods you can make it work extremely well.

Pros:Lightweight.
Two different positions for adjusting arm angle.
Cons:Arm-Tubes brake while folding the frame because there is no space between the clamps and the centerplate.

12" Props hardly fit the frame, there is nearly no space between the props (front rear).

Landing gear made from metal (=heavy.
Other Thoughts:Came without dampers for the Gimbal.
Bottomline:Folding mechanism causes the 16mm Arms to break.
It could be solved with putting spacer between clamps and centerplate.
The way the frame is delivered, it is useless to my opinion.
