BoltRC Kraken 5X with the 3.0 POD. This frame is really strong and handles like a champ, I got it for racing and because I'm new to racing I decided to go with the toughest POD I could buy, so far I haven't broken anything, just lots of props and motor bearings. Favorite QUAD I have.
Also everything has a layer of silicone conformal coating for those rainy days :)

badass i loved my kraken 5r before i stupidly flew up at night in middle of woods.. so now in usa im not sure who sells them besides team blacksheep and urban drones, im worried boltrc will discontinue this frame but hopefullly im wrong.. plans are to buy two more frames and put the primo 2207/2650kv again since 5s is so awesome and this quad design and aeropod is bada++ hope i can get anouther one setup but 400 to build how i built mine

Hey man. Do you think you can fit 3 layer stack in there?

I don't think so, its pretty tight in space already

I'm considering this frame, does the unify on 800mw overheat inside the pod

It probably will, this is a racing frame so most places don't allow 800mw of power, I run this at 200mw and sometimes we have to sit on the start line for a while and I've never had a problem.

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
