    450 Quadcopter Frame From PolyFlex Pressure Pipe

    This $4 frame has no screws, is very rigid and weighs less than the flamewheel. The ESCs are inside the 1" arms/tubes which is more durable and reduces the drag. Illuminati flight controller with on screen display, Xiaomi Yi camera, 600 mw video transmitter, 2212/920 KV motors, SimonK 30 amp...

    330 flamewheel with landing gear needs motors and esc's.

    Hey everyone, I need some recommendations for the motors and Esc's to put on my new 330mm flamewheel frame with landing gear. I've only used 2205 2300kv motors in the past on my 220 and 280 quad and they work very well. I just wonder if they would provide enough lift for this model. it seems...

    HELP--Racing Quad Build

    Hi all, First off I put a poll up to help decide what size frame to get. I'm looking to possibly build a mini racer, but I'm not sure what components to get. Preferably, I would like one that is around 100mm, and durable so when I crash there is a less chance of breaking things. :) I might...

    Making a new race frame using my CNC machine

    The last couple of months I was working on a new frame design. I wanted to make a very light and yet a very strong frame! The whole frame is made out of 4 mm carbon fiber and weights only 90 grams! Watch this video to see how the frame comes to life!

    Good 300ish Frames with Carbon Tube arms?

    Hey guys, I am in the market for a new 300 frame and the mxp300 is a possible option, but i really want carbon tube arms for the extra efficiency, strength and it makes turning the motors 10 degrees easier. I have thought about retrofitting either of the Mamba frames but i was wondering if...

    Made In USA Aluminum Quadcopter Frames

    The video above is a comparison between our aluminum frame and a G10 counter part. It tests things like strength, weight, and overall durability. The idea came about after we got tired of buying knockoff G10 frames online, each time we crashed hard we pretty much needed a new frame. So I had an...

    Dragonfly frame weight / other questions?

    Hello FT crew! Does anyone know the weight of the dragonfly frame? Also what is the spacing of the motor mount holes (standard disk, not tilt mount)? One more question, what is the suggested landing gear setup. (I don't think the supplied gear will work with 2 motors pointing down :) Thanks...
