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 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?

its the toughest frame Ive held.. crashed it a couple times so far, no damage yet.

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..
