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.

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
