Acrobrat .... How about the Nitrognat?

So, i've been looking for a new 3" build and the Acrobrat seemed to fit the bill. Why not?

The hatchback plate, internal buzzer mount and internal cap mount are my design. Hatchback holds XT60, AXII, and a tail which you can "clamshell" an Immortal T antenna. It uses coarse 1.6MMx9MM screws.

Love the color scheme looks A1 how are those motors ive heard they have some durability issues do they hold up in a crash? also does that setup fly like a 5inch?

TheDronanaut   May 13, 2019 

Thanks for the kind words @danbooj. Motors are fair. I did have to replace one with a tree strike. But I hit it pretty hard. It flys fairly well, however the flight times suffer cause of the AUW weight. It's a flying rock with all the TPU :)

Thanks for the info; Im looking at the micro reverb frame from impulse rc and I want to build a 3 inch that flies smooth and has lots of speed should I go with 13xx or 14xx motors?

Ohhh that's a tough one. Something like that I would say is personal preference. Thrust to weight is what you wanna look at. It all depends on how heavy the bird is, how much torque you want, and flight time.

Good luck!

how are you able to soft mount the stack? it looks like there is a pin connector for the fc to esc? Wouldnt the soft mounting increase the height too far for the pins to fully engage?

TheDronanaut   Feb 25, 2019 

Sorry I missed your message! The stack soft mounts with grommets at the bottom of the frame. That's the design of the Acrobrat. The stack and lower half is isolated from the upper and the cams.

Damn, that's gorgeous! The details are insane. I'd be afraid to fly it and get it dirty - lol.

Thanks man! It's all about that incentive to not get it dirty :)

how much amps are you pulling, cos do you reckon you could use the 4in1 28a esc from hglrc?

Hey man! Thanks for the kind words! I like the look of shrink tube. I've purchased this brand for the last few years now:

Enjoy and stay tuned! Got my favorite 3" build coming!

Super clean build, fun color choices. Love the hatchback mount, thanks for sharing on Thingiverse. Is the yellow in the photos tape or shrink wrap?

auw weight?

TheDronanaut   Sep 18, 2018

329g with the CNHL 850 4s packs.

So, is the limit for FFA registration still 1/2 lb ? If so, this is barely legal w/ no registration? I'm building an Acrobrat right now, but your build is top notch... WOW!

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit.
