The Falcon Multirotors Bullshark is shipping now! Get yours for only $20!

Bullshark is one of the first 2-2.5" capable frames that supports the CCD RunCam Micro. With a 50° stretch-x layout and a proper camera, Babyshark is both small and capable, and managed to take 1st place at the MultiGP IO Micro track with Phreakin FPV at the controls.

This build was fun and came together really quick thanks to the XJB stack's simple wiring layout. I even managed to sandwich 3 programmable WS2812 LEDs into the build that line up with the snap/screw in shark fin.

The build didn't end up as light as I wanted because I had to use aluminum standoffs and steel screws, but the final kits will come with nylon standoffs and aluminum screws to keep the weight down.

lazd, loving the looks of the bullshark. I have been looking for the ultimate lightweight frame to run some Rotorx 1107's with a Hglrc 428 stack or a zeus on gemfan 2540's. Do you think this combo will work with the bullshark?

Hey doc, we went with 2" for the production Bullsharks since there were no compelling 2.5" props at the time. I can cut you a 2.5" Bullshark if you like, and we could go with 25mm standoffs so the HGLRC stack fits with the VTX with room to spare. WDYT?

Thanks for the reply Lazd. I have been following all the falcon stuff and it all looks sweet. the bullshark with 2.5 or 3in would be compelling. I think i'm getting away from the 2in micros and like some superlight 2.5- 3in builds. I've got a 3in with 1304's that comes in at 90g AUW and is currently my fav micro.

So are you looking to run 1304s on 1107s? I will whip a 2.5" Bullshark up for you.

If you're thinking about 3" for racing, the Featherlight 3 may be a good option, as it has replaceable arms. Any thoughts on that frame? I can also do a 3" Bullshark if you prefer to try that, but we may have to up carbon thickness to 3mm (as we did on Splitshark after crash testing)

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
