CRD220 - "Schleifer"

finally...

next version of my frame is assembled and ready to fly.

For this version i basically took the structure of the "TBS-Source-one" (same arm-angle and screw distances) and put my own design over it.
The arm-thickness is 4mm, bottom and center plates are 3mm each and the top plate is 2.5mm.
Motor to motor distance is 220mm.

Because of the similarity, you can use a lot of TBS accessories including the arms.
Its still veeery, very compact and lightweight (83g with screws and spacers) but as durable and at least as fast and agile as the source-one.
With the lipo underneath and a go-pro on top you have a nearly perfect weight distribution...so...IMO its a stunning mix from racer and freestyler.

First test-flight comes this weekend.
I am very excited to try it out and will keep you posted.

If its as good as expected i would make a larger batch of those frames.
So if you are interested, like it or have some points of critique let me know.
I would like to hear some comments on this.

Really Awesome! It's just the right kind of frame for a strong light freestyle build. Does this arm design have any advantages over the standard source one v3 arms? I would probably change to an some sort of angled antenna mount just behind the frame to help prevent the anennat from breaking in the event of a crash.
How does it fly?

Hey :)
thanks a lot for commenting.
The Main reason for this arm design is that i want to reduce the weight a bit, but i am not a fan of the toothpick-style...and also...it looks very cool in my opinion. Simulation indicates that it should have almost the same toughness as the tbs.
For the next build i want to try a stubby-style antenna like the lumenier XII but an angled antenna mount would also be a nice idea.
Sadly, the weather wasnt very good the last days and prevented extensive testing.
Will keep you posted.

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..

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..
