I direct soldered all the wires to the motors and saved 37g! I also didn't use the clips to allow you to fold the arms, I think it was another 15g, not bad for a few hrs of work. I'm getting about 10 Min on 2 4s 3000mah wired together, might settle on 1 4s 10000mah.

Re: tarot 680 pro on a diet

That is a great idea. There is no advantage to having a bunch of bullet connectors on a quad that you will NEVER have to touch once the quad is set up and flying. My first quad came with bullet connectors and of course, being an airplane guy, I hooked them all up. But 2-1/2 years later, I have yet to unplug even ONE bullet connector from this quad for any reason.

I learned my lesson and Quad #2 is direct wired. In addition to the weight, you save $$ by not having to buy the bullets. Of course, when setting up the quad, you need to check the motor direction before you make the final soldering connection and apply the heat shrink
