DESIGN GOALS

When we set out to design a 7 inch long range frame, we had a few goals in mind

  • Compact design for easy transportation
  • Yet spacious enough to carry large battery packs
  • Variable HD camera angle
  • Independent FPV camera angle
  • No props in camera view

DESIGN FEATURES

With those goals in mind, we settled on a few design features that you see in the transformer such as

FOLDING ARM DESIGN WITH QUICK RELEASE MECHANISM

  • Arms are mounted on 2 points.
  • We use thumb screws and k-nuts that slide in and out of slots on the arms. This allows us to quickly fold the arm simply by loosening the screws and slide them out of the slots

LARGE BODY SECTION FOR BOTH TOP MOUNT AND BOTTOM MOUNT BATTERY OPTIONS

  • The body is carefully crafted so it can carry up to 5000mAh 4S LiPo.
  • You have the option to top mount or bottom mount the battery, or both.

GOPRO CASE IS SUSPENDED IN FRONT OF THE QUAD WITH INDEPENDENT TILTING MECHANISM FROM FPV CAMERA

  • GoPro case is interchangeable, however we are focusing on the GoPro Hero 7 camera because of its beautiful Hypersmooth feature which will be very valuable in getting cinematic HD footage.
  • At later date we will release a case for GoPro Session as well

OOO I am seriously in love with this frame! I'm looking to really push my new Hero 7 Black for some long range cinematics, and I think I finally found the platform to put it on! Great stuff!

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..
