I have some flights on mine now also and it flys really nice. Still tuning but very happy with it so far. Mine is on 6s with the Egodrift 4025-1190HT, HW 120 esc , MKS HV 9767 mini cyclics and of course V Control and Neo FBL. Will be swapping over to Rotor Tech Blades today. Thanks to Paul at TheHeliHangar.ca
Take care

Re: Kraken 580

That is the standard 600 size they recommend for the heli and the same size as Charles EgoDrift. Just 10mm taller than my 4025 which has 22mm of room above it under the canopy.
