S5 Race

Modular, hinged canopy. Stretch X. 5mm arms. 20x20mm stack. Free!

This frame has been designed with racing and customization in mind. 5mm individual arms with 2.5mm top and bottom plates means a rock solid construction. I'm offering this up to the community for free, you cut the carbon, you print your own parts, you supply your own hardware.

Print your own parts from our library or design your own
AXii, linear and SMA rear options
20x20mm stack only
Bolt on fins and go pro mounts

What do I need to cut?
Four 5mm arms
2.5mm top and bottom plate

What do I need to complete the frame?
One front hinge (rigid or flexible, try both)
One main canopy (TPU, flexible material)
One rear hinge (TPU, flexible material)
M3 hardware (4x14mm, 4x16mm, 1x20mm, 1x25mm) with lock nuts

All files are available on Thingiverse.

I've done two builds with this frame now. This one (images show millivolt but that dies on instal so I'm using the Talon F7. The second build is near identical with the exception that it's using the Aikon32 20x20 3-6S esc.
