With all the hype with Toothpick and TP3 and then likes, we took a hard look at the design philosophy around these frames and decided that we wanted to make something different. There are several shortcomings with the Toothpick frame design that we aim to address with the AirBlade EX.

The AirBlade EX essentially borrows the design elements from the original AirBlade Eclair. Follow our blog for full details of what we aim to achieve with the AirBlade EX https://www.airbladeuav.com/blogs/how-to-drone-series/airblade-ex-frame-kit-the-only-ultralight-micro-you-need

Oh, I love my Eclaire (R3 1106's)! This looks like another great build to put in my queue for the winter!

Very interesting roll cage. One thing it might be nice to have in the future: a spot to zip tie the vtx to the frame so it can be used for a heat sink.

We're working on several ideas actually. The original Eclair has 3D printed parts we call the backpack to hold the vtx and antenna, so we could do something like that for this. Otherwise, TinyLeds also has a mounting board for VTX (pro32 nano specifically) in the 26x26 form factor
