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.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
