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.
Get the STLs build your own frame.

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.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
