My first 7" build, the FR7 is an amazing open source design by Jeremy Mariscal. Flying 4400 5S (dual 2200s) with 2408.5 1922kv motors, this quad is designed to be a strong, fast, cinematic mountain surfer. The FR7 is one of the coolest designs I have seen. Now that I've got some nice build and glamour photos, next will be to test, tune & send it. I will update this build with video from this bird soon.

Great job for this build.
What is the red long straight antenna on the rear (near the Lumenier AX-ii) ?
Thanks

Great looking build. Are you using 2 immortal Ts? Unclear what's inside the orange straw. Thanks. What range and fight times are you getting?

What would you estimate is price for carbon as sheet material?

WILLBEER   Jun 23, 2019 

No clue

wow, such a beautiful frame and build. I am also interested in 6 inch. I wonder if you could share just the weight of frame? btw, is there a place to order this to be cut? thanks.

Thank you so much for the info.

How's the stiffness on the actual frame? It sounds good from the video, but I've had a few frames cut from CNCM and was a little disappointed in the carbon

WILLBEER   Jun 14, 2019 

The arms are 6mm and frame seems very stiff.

What's the big red antenna tube? Also, what an amazing build!

WILLBEER   Jun 13, 2019 

Thanks! It's got the active element of stock crossfire dipole inside tube, with ground element balled up inside tpu print.

Thank you, that is really nice to hear. I am glad that you appreciate the build and photography, I am passionate about both.

coming from an Avionics background, its nice to see soldering that isn't over cooked and wiring routed properly. it just makes my brain feel nice.
If only I could pull it off too...

WILLBEER   Jun 09, 2019 

I couldn't do this at first but I have gotten much better.

Love the build! Cleanest I've seen for a 7"!

Do you know if there is a 6" version available? Are props in view of the GoPro footage?

WILLBEER   Jun 09, 2019

There is not a 6" version of this frame but you could always just run 6" props on it. No props in view.

QuadX, check my FR7 for example footage with a Session in superview, no props in view

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..
