Quark X HD - (6inch quad with Connex Prosight video)

Quark X HD Frame produced by Armattan productions,
Canopy printed from Nylon carbon.
It's important to use Nylon/Carbon 3d filament

I've been playing a lot with normal antenna, custom antenna, different canopy types. Current canopy model is 3rd tested generation.

Weight: 400g (600g w/ battery)
Thrust/weight ratio: 1800*4 : 600 = 12 : 1

p.s. Thank you Steve for help with printing!

Hi there, I'm wondering if you can tell me what Software this frame was designed in? thanks for your time,

For 3D/2D I recommend Solidworks or similar.

For carbon parts ArmattanProductions points to http://qcad.org. I like this tool, it's easy and free but it only supports 2D.

Later I realized it's easy to create all parts in 3D, play and check complete assembly and export any part to 2D if required.

So is connex actually viable? I must say that the hd video feed is very attractive.

I like HD feed very much. I started FPV from Connex Prosight and then build analog quad Quark to try and compare.
There several problems with connex: weight, delay, external video receiver, poor OSD, price...
But overall I prefer HD. I think for fast quad it's the best option.

I've been flying HD for about 1 year. I replaced a lot of antennas and ordered new lens (you can see damaged lens on photos). Also broken 2 solid frames.. But main connex camera and VTX are still good.

So basically once you try it, you cant go back? :/ I think ill try and hold off.

Yes, HD is the future of FPV :)

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..
