VertiBus 5 Freestyler (own design)

Hello everyone,
together with a buddy we have come up with a new twist for the (not so new) vertical arm concept. Based on the popular (at least in Europe) race frame called Infinitum or Staccato, both mainly for racing with lipo on the bottom, we have adapted this design to carry the lipo and a HD-cam on top.
These vert-arms have proven to be immensly effective in providing a stable flight. So we wanted this also for freestyle.
The name is drived from VERTIcal arms in a traditional BUS design, like the Alien/QAV/ZMR/Martian and many more. This avoids the hassle when building or fixing, thanks to easy access without having to dismantle the whole thing.
This thing cuts corners like a racer and is much more silent than the traditional "fat" arms. Awesome to fly...........efficiency seems equal to the more traditional arm designs though. This I will only tell over time.

I love it! Great concept and execution! I bet it flies like a dream. Thanks for sharing. Please continue to create this wonderful stuff. I'm new to 5" brushless and wanting to improve skills to race and HD Video freestyle soon. Seeing and reading stuff like this makes more want it even more.

Yup, my personal best flying frame yet. Despite being heavy, handles like a light-weight. These thin arms simply let the air through, no resistence. No comparison to those wide arms like a Rooster or Alien.

Could this frame see production? Is there a way to get schematic to have one cut for myself? Thanks for sharing

Basically yes. Let me check with my buddy how we are going to handle such requests.

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. We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

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..
