Looks like Diatone is picking up there game. Look at this thing its beautiful made from Toray Carbon, but will it be strong enough to stand up to the abuse of FPV. Will you fly it or just mount it on your wall and admire it?

A quick look at the parts and they are not holding back, the X549 uses the new Mamba F722 Mini Stack, 35Amp 4in1 and a choice of Tmotor Motors.

What Is Toray Carbon?

For those who don’t know, Toray is one of the worlds largest manufacturers are carbon fibre products, so rather than using some generic carbon fibre, the GT X549 uses top tier carbon that has undergone a proper and audited manufacturing process. So it is probably abit stronger and nicer looking, but it could also be a gimmick.
