Quark X HD - (6inch quad with Connex Prosight video)

Quark X HD Frame produced by Armattan productions,
Canopy printed from Nylon carbon.
It's important to use Nylon/Carbon 3d filament

I've been playing a lot with normal antenna, custom antenna, different canopy types. Current canopy model is 3rd tested generation.

Weight: 400g (600g w/ battery)
Thrust/weight ratio: 1800*4 : 600 = 12 : 1

p.s. Thank you Steve for help with printing!

Hi there, I'm wondering if you can tell me what Software this frame was designed in? thanks for your time,

For 3D/2D I recommend Solidworks or similar.

For carbon parts ArmattanProductions points to http://qcad.org. I like this tool, it's easy and free but it only supports 2D.

Later I realized it's easy to create all parts in 3D, play and check complete assembly and export any part to 2D if required.

So is connex actually viable? I must say that the hd video feed is very attractive.

I like HD feed very much. I started FPV from Connex Prosight and then build analog quad Quark to try and compare.
There several problems with connex: weight, delay, external video receiver, poor OSD, price...
But overall I prefer HD. I think for fast quad it's the best option.

I've been flying HD for about 1 year. I replaced a lot of antennas and ordered new lens (you can see damaged lens on photos). Also broken 2 solid frames.. But main connex camera and VTX are still good.

So basically once you try it, you cant go back? :/ I think ill try and hold off.

Yes, HD is the future of FPV :)

Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

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..
