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.

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.

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   3 days ago 

The arms are 6mm and frame seems very stiff.

WILLBEER   4 days ago

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...

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   8 days ago

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

It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S.

Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
