This frame is an early prototype of a light 6" strech-x racer I am working on.
Frame weight is 66 grams with canoyp and hardware and the build is around 310 grams w/o battery. The arms are 5mm carbon.
Pulls around 110amps on 6S and 6" props with the 1500kV 2306 motors. The top speed and acceleration with this stetup is absolute insaity!

That frame looks great? Do you have any idea if you're going to sell it?

Thanks! yes but it'll take a few more months of intense testing and improving the design before I'm ready to release it...

From  what I see the TWR is quite low (circa 12:1) yet the disc loading number (assuming you're using 6s 1300 Gnb LiPo) and looks are just amazing. Can you provide a DVR from track flying? I'd be really curious about it.

Man, that looks bonkers!!!!!!! I would love a conopy based on this one for my frame. If you're interested in helping me, let me know and I'll send you my contact data via YouTube.

and those props are done 😔 those 6x5x3 lumenier props are nice, but durability is absolute shite! Amazing flying and what you've done so far with this build is amazing.

Thanks! Yeah those props fly amazing but they are expensive and pretty much trash after avery crash... I just have crazy vibrations after they took an impact. Seems like they tend to bend...

How do you design the frame? Any how to videos or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I use Fusion 360 and the rest is learning by doing. I have an Engineering background tho. What really helps is having a 3D printer to quickly prototype...

I've been playing around with fusion and totally agree with a 3d printer. I've been having a lot of fun but my canopies never come out like this. beaitiful work!

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
