This frame is an early prototype of a light 6" strech-x racer I am working on.
Frame weight is 66 grams with canoyp and hardware and the build is around 310 grams w/o battery. The arms are 5mm carbon.
Pulls around 110amps on 6S and 6" props with the 1500kV 2306 motors. The top speed and acceleration with this stetup is absolute insaity!

That frame looks great? Do you have any idea if you're going to sell it?

Thanks! yes but it'll take a few more months of intense testing and improving the design before I'm ready to release it...

From  what I see the TWR is quite low (circa 12:1) yet the disc loading number (assuming you're using 6s 1300 Gnb LiPo) and looks are just amazing. Can you provide a DVR from track flying? I'd be really curious about it.

Man, that looks bonkers!!!!!!! I would love a conopy based on this one for my frame. If you're interested in helping me, let me know and I'll send you my contact data via YouTube.

and those props are done 😔 those 6x5x3 lumenier props are nice, but durability is absolute shite! Amazing flying and what you've done so far with this build is amazing.

Thanks! Yeah those props fly amazing but they are expensive and pretty much trash after avery crash... I just have crazy vibrations after they took an impact. Seems like they tend to bend...

How do you design the frame? Any how to videos or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I use Fusion 360 and the rest is learning by doing. I have an Engineering background tho. What really helps is having a 3D printer to quickly prototype...

I've been playing around with fusion and totally agree with a 3d printer. I've been having a lot of fun but my canopies never come out like this. beaitiful work!

Want to learn how to build an FPV rig? This guide will walk you through your first FPV freestyle build. These parts were hand-picked to balance cost and maximize performance. The TBS Source One is a popular frame for it's low cost, high quality carbon fiber. It's easy to work with and provides more than enough space for your electronics.

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..
