PROS
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.

PROS
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!

PROS
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.

PROS
nice neutral beam, no blue-green halo good quality star-board 20% better than t6 XM-l
CONS
I prefer a cooler temperature (6500K)
excellent upgrade for flashlight- I put it in a convoy m1 host with an 8*7135 driver and it's a beautiful monster! Love it! I find that I prefer the cooler temperatures slightly more than the warm ones. Thought this would be a good one, but it's a little warm for my tastes. Still, 20% more light output than the original XM-l and a very nice price too.

PROS
see prev. review.
CONS
I can taste nicotine in one bottle, despite label saying "0 mg"
I just received two more bottles of this, and either Hangsen has changed their lids or one of my two orders had fake e-liquid. The old lid was one of those "child-resistant" push-and-turn things, where the new bottles had a different design, including a ratcheting tamper-evident ring (which had a broken seal on both bottles I might add) and a longer, thinner nozzle. Anyway, one bottle tastes exactly the same as my old one but the other one has the distinct sting of nicotine, despite being labeled "0 mg" just like the other bottle. This label also rubbed off startlingly easily, through just normal handling for a half day. If Fasttech staff read this, I recommend an investigation.
