so this is my new top battery acro frame design. big feature of this beast is the 10mm stack hight using a split stack design. it also can use an AIO FC/PBD and escs under the arms if you so desire.. the FC ive chosen to use is the Airbot 20x20 F4 nana V6.. this guy is a little beast, 6s capable, 8v LC rail, 6 uarts including an I2C bus. the other kool feature is the ground and 5v rails they are long fat pad type.. it also uses a std 8 pin esc block so you can as i have run a full sized ESC.
while the test flying and tuning will occur on 4s this thing is set up to be a 6s acro monster.. mid kv tmotor F60s, 1000uf 50v cap that is massive and the airBot typhoon keeping the monster motors fed wit all the powa.
i desgned the frame to have easy access to the avionics bay, if you loosen off the 8 arm bolts and remove the camera top bolts the gopro plate, and top deck come off woth the arms held inplace via the mounting bolts and the whole stack accessable.

frame weight : 108g with hardware
dry weight : 454g with gopro, 330g ish with out
AWU: 694g with 1250mah 6s, 629g with 1300mah 4s

the dipole is only until the 90 degree sma/mmcx cable arrives

finally found the right props also for this machine.. the HQ 5.1x4.6x3.. its the only prop what can acheive full throttle on this rig and mantain the pitch and control.. the amps though... 190-220amps depending on the loading

I like the antislip 'U shaped' part on the frame that fixes the battery. clerver design on this part
by the way, your battery link needs a correction, you linked to a gopro

the look of the naked frame is pleasant

nah the battery cable is jsut running past it.. its taking me a while to get used to the weight.. i used to flying 400g racing rigs

That's a really cool design! I'm super excited to see more slammed builds using a split stack. Any concerns about that upright SMA mount? I snapped a few of those before I switched to just running my antennae out the back.

can also mount it up the front to the side.. just infront of the battery... then its kinda protected via the gopro mount.. also if you use an axii stubby at the rear its not going to get hit unless you are super unlucky.. that top plate is also 3mm thick so it'll be tough

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
