New build in the brand new Diatone Innovations GT X549 Exorcist racing frame. The goal for this build was to have a strong, lightweight 6s racer with top of the line equipment, no compromises. I think the parts were matched perfectly for this build and so far it has been flying amazing!

Awesome frame!

I have your lead shot as my phone lock screen.

I wanted to know what the intent was with the frame design. Was it to bring the props towards the center of the body so that you have a better balance between all axis?

PLUS being a tank against crashes?

I'm taking this as a personal compliment and not in regards to the build whatsoever ;)

That frame is one of the most beatifful ever made IMO. Although probably not practical enough to be used in competion by amateur pilots.

What kind of tape is that on the motor wires

what a nice frame, but, ehm :) not so nice build i mean cable management should be nicer.

It's mostly because the motor wires are gray and adding sleeving would just be adding uneeded weight. I routed them this way to keep distance from the props ;)

It's a pretty frame viewed in isolation but I'd never thought about the cable management when built, shape does make it a little more awkward to get it clean looking! Still, looks like a great build, how's the stiffness compared to a conventional flat carbon rig?

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..
