SkudRunner Mk1

This is a one of a kind prototype frame developed by CrashBOX Drones. The core design goals were to minimize drag through reducing the profile (incl. a vertical PCB board mount), internalizing all wires and electronics and streamlining the airflows over the airframe. It is industrially 3D printed (fused Nylon 12) so is extremely tough yet flexible. A system of spars and struts dampen any vibrations and resonance .

It also has a hinged top allowing two screw access.

The SkudRunner Mk2, the result of a complete redesign improving on the Mk 1, is currently in testing.

hows it going, I have an Instagram for my drones with more than 13k followers. I'd love to do a review on this frame and in turn help you out as well. Let me know if your interested, im an avid drone builder, tech and all my builds on this website have been featured. look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for the interest! TBH didn't realise there were comments here, sorry for the delay in reply. Lookout for the Mk2! Will def keep you in mind once I start sending out review frames further afield.

That really clean looking quad. I like this vertical arms idea. Do you think it could be easily modified for Caddex Vista or DJI Air Unit?

CrashBOX   Mar 09, 2020 

I still need to get a unit to test the sizing for the Caddex. I've got a long range frame coming out soon specifically for the full DJI unit.

What does it weigh? As in the frame.

Just the frame (no bolts) is around 117g

Very pretty frame, but the frontal area is still looking a little fat

CrashBOX   Mar 09, 2020 

Took off a full inch in the mk2 to fix that :)

This is really cool reminds me of a vertical fc/esc freestyle frame I designed and flew a few years ago.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
