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.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
