This is our newest 5-inch racing frame, XAOS. In this design, we've sandwiched the arms between the bottom and mid-plates and made those plates thicker for added strength and rigidity. We've had this model in the field all summer, incorporating our team pilot's suggestions as we went along until all were happy with the design. This is the result.
The XAOS weighs in at a respectable 69 grams naked. Adding the camera and antenna mounts, which come with the frame, kicks it up to 72 grams.

Notable specs:

  • 69g
  • 5mm arms
  • 3.5mm mid-plate
  • 3mm bottom plate
  • 2mm top plate
  • 25mm made-in-the-US aluminum stand-offs
  • Includes camera and antenna mounts

As we usually do with our builds, this model is for sale at a reduced price yet to be decided. If you are interested check here. I hope to her listed by this afternoon. Thanks for your interest.

I originally wanted to use a Caddix Turbo cam, but it seemed to be giving me video issues - not sure why. S I swapped it out for the RunCam Sparrow Pro.

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.
