Custom frame and camera mount from RotorVillage.ca
Frame is cut from Polycarbonate and is nearly indestructible!

At 124g AUW the Cherub+ is a lightweight quad that flies so solid and can take a tumble with the best of them. It performs impressively well with the motor, prop and battery combo! It's currently my "go-to" frame!

All prices are in Canadian dollars.

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.
