This is the CRICKET 225 LONG on Armattan Productions that was designed by WickedWingman. So far this frame is awesome. 3d parts were designed by me. It is finally finished and I am very happy with it.

any idea for frame weight without the 3D printed parts? just standoffs/bolts?

zaniix   Aug 15, 2016 

Not yet, there was a mistake when the frame was cut and the Top plate and CAM plates that showed up were 1mm instead of 1.5mm, they are sending me new ones. Right now its about 85g with he thinner plates including stand offs and screws, I also used CA glue on the edges that might have added a gram or two. I will post the weight of the frame with and without the TPU and then final weight once built. I would expect the weight to be under 90g with hardware.

The weight is 86.1g with hardware
you have the option of top plate mounting the vTX antenna or you can print out the part I made and send it out the back.

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..
