Warpquad String Theory with FPV pod

By lblb on Jun 17, 2016

7  530  6

This is a IpulseRC Warpquad String Theory 200 mm frame with a custom milled FPV pod (files found on RCGroups). It's a very light and agile quad that is my secondary frame if the Alien has a defect or is stuck in a tree.

Weights: 227 g without LiPo, 392 g AUW.

Do you have a link to those pieces you cut? How much would you charge for a set of them?

A few times, and I'd say it works for up to 40 m in tall grass, which is usually enough to find the quad.

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..
