Just in time for MultiGP Nationals in Reno, NV. This design is meant for 4in1 ESCs and micro cams only. Losing weight and decreasing drag was the goal with this frame. Thinner but taller arms should provide better airflow without sacrificing strength. In the event that an arm does get broken only one screw needs to be removed for a swap. Slim but strong, this build comes in at 299g w/o battery.

It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
