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

Will the Zeus AIO fit? And when can i buy? :)

it can only accommodate 26x26 and 16x16, you can check out our regular airblade eclair for 20x20 stack

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

Thanks! We have a lot of cool stuff coming for it as well

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

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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..
