Räsvelg 5 is available now for $69 at Pitch Roll Yaw and FPVHQ!

It's finally here, our aerodynamic and light-weight race quad: Räsvelg 5. It's the result of dozens of prototypes, tiny tweaks, and an overall major re-imagination of what a quad with a canopy can look like. Designed with 5mm replaceable arms, a battery strap solution that doesn't require weaving, and a sleek canopy that mounts a HS1177 with 1.8mm, 2.5mm, or 2.8mm lenses, Räsvelg is the ultimate racer. The frame weighs in at just 75g including the canopy and camera mount, making it one of the lighter quads on the market, but where Räsvelg really shines is aerodynamics. I've never flown a quad so... quiet. The skinniness of the arms makes for very little drag, resulting in a much quieter quad. That is, until it's pointed at you mid-corner, then it sounds like the ultra-aggressive corpse-swallowing instrument of winning that it is.

Overall this is one of my most favorite builds, it's maintainable, goes together easily, and supports quick battery strap swaps in the field.

How do you like that 4-in-1 ESC? I'm considering getting it

Thank you for sharing this info.
I'm a bit confused as I thought you were using the Infantry _s.

Ah, yes, I tried the Infantry and had two FET failures on the #1 ESC in normal flight. I would not recommend that board. I had since switched to the Cicada 30A and 35A for these builds and forgot to update the page. Sorry about that!

Alright, I will stay away from it, although it's one of the only which has BEC and 6S support.
I'm expecting to get this frame next week!!!

Simple, sleek, and damn sexy!!!

Is there going to be a Räsvelg 6?

lazd   Nov 27, 2016 

If there is demand, we can cut some 6" arms and sell those separately!

MattS   Nov 28, 2016 

I'm interested :)

Any Chance on opening up the STL for the pod? I'm going to be rebuilding my Falcon185 and would have fun retrofitting it.

Unfortunately no, but you will be able to buy them from phx-3d.com soon!

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
