The RC Crazed Slim Phast is a purpose built racing frame and we are REALLY EXCITED to release it! It is light, strong, and feature packed. This frame is designed around the RunCam Micro Swift FPV camera. Full-size and mini cameras will work but you won't have the same degree of protection for your FPV camera. This thing is very rigid and sports 4mm thick arms that are 12mm wide which are a perfect fit for the EMAX Bullet ESCs. Wide enough so that they don't turn into rubber bands from the torque twisting produced by powerful motors and thick enough to crash and crash and keep on flying. The main plate is 3mm thick and the top plate is 2mm thick. We offer another top plate that is also 2mm thick that is a bit wider and has slots in it for mounting components. There is a slight stretch to the frame and the MTM comes in at 210mm. We went through several prototype revisions to find the right balance of weight, strength and flight characteristics.

Our local Cleveland Quad Squad pilots really put this frame to the test and we kept refining it, a little longer here, a little wider there, a little thinner here and the result is pretty awesome! We include loads of 3d printed parts to complete the package including camera mounts, a micro swift protector, a top plate mounted camera bumper, and a rear standoff mounted VTX and RX antenna mount. We include all these parts in green but you will be able to get them in more colors as well as some more cool 3d printed accessories real soon! We will have a TX03 and XM+ single layer stack mount, arm guards, and a gopro session mount. There is also one spare arm included with the frame.

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..
