The Skip HD3 toothpick is a new one from GEPRC. It is a light 3 inch toothpick with an HD camera.
Let’s do a tour !

The design of this light 3inch toothpick is pretty well done, even if I would prefer removable arms on this size (carbon is 2.5mm and chamfered), because you are starting to increase the power and the weight, so much more force on the frame during a crash.
The canopy is in TPU and GEPRC added all necessary features, like the hole for the vtx antenna or the rx receiver, which seems anecdotic but very practical in the reality. Moreover the TPU is strong and resistant, specially to protect the board of the caddx turtle HD, where you have my review here
Otherwise, the FC AIO board is now pretty reliable, so no worry with that, it will handle correctly the 4S with the motors. Interesting choice to have use the 1105 motors instead of the 1204/1303. Probably not the smooth motors and lack of control in the high throttle but pretty fast as you could see in the video.
You will probably need to tune a little bit the PID but as seen in my video it is a flight with the default one, so too bad.
