These are the main parts here. Everything is very nicely labeled in the bags, so theres really no doubt as to whatever these parts are yeah m, 2.5 by 18., m2x8 and the number of screws. So all the screws, nuts and all the little parts here are nicely labeled, because it can get a little confusing how to build this. The instructions werent printed in the packaging. You have to actually go to the product page and theres a download link to a pdf file that shows how to put this together and im not going to cover that in this video im just going to go ahead and show you what it looks like after. I put it together, but i wanted to show you how it came out of the packaging and its you know very nicely organized and everything is very nicely labeled. This is the main part of the frame, the top plate, thats going to hold everything together, and then you have these vertical braces. So you have these that go forward and backwards and sideways uh ill show you that ill show you after you, when uh after ive put this together. Basically, they hold the motors on these little vertical plates there and so thats. Why you need a lot of screws and nuts to hold these vertical plates on its typical for frames of this type that have a lot of vertical pieces, and this is also in the central area thats going to protect the electronics so this plate here.

So its going to be a little tricky getting this together and i will talk about all the little pitfalls when i actually finished building it as to what to watch out, for i think that the difficulty is is getting all the parts on and i think the The center piece is here: thats going to protect the electronics. They probably wont do that last so um yeah thats what im going to thats, what im anticipating. So this is what the frame comes with over. Here you have some 3d printed parts. They do have a bunch of 3d printed accessories. You can buy as add ons so, for example, heres the uh. This is a hero, 8 gopro mount and they have a different ones of the hero 9 as well. So this is an accessory. You can purchase it. I think its like 10 and then, if you um, want to put a little bit of like bumper protection on this carbon plate, because if you just fly it around indoors without any sort of protection, you can dent walls and stuff like that and leave marks and Stuff, like that, so uh, one of the 3d printer parts are these little bumpers, so thatll uh. If you hit the corners of the carbon here, for example, this little piece here, thats going to be covered up by the tpu part, and then you have these basically tpu printed like ducks. So the main advantage of a frame like this is its very light.

I can i mean its hard to show you on camera, but yeah. If you just look at the carbon pieces, its very light, obviously all the screws and nuts are going to add more weight and ill. Show you what everything weighs here but um compared to other three inch cinema frames. This is going to be a little bit lighter, but the other advantage is that, because the pieces that are holding the motors are vertical theres not going to be any obstruction to the thrust, even though the motors are mounted normally and not inverted. So you get some of the advantages of me of a pusher setup with the vertical place, because the thrust isnt going to be as obstructed compared to uh other frames, where theres like an arm thats going to be blocking some of that thrust. So something keep in mind of this design. But if you want to go with a duct type of design, they have these 3d printed parts and there is a it is a duct theres, a theres, a curve to it or a a like a like a little bit of a slope here, thats gon na Redirect that thrust and provide a little bit more efficiency, i have no idea how this is going to work. Obviously, until i fly it but thats, i think what the idea is with these, so you get four of these and, of course, this is also an accessory. You can buy if you want to and then again again with this being a light frame and the thrust not being as affected youre going to have less of that cinematic type of flight characteristics where it just feels a little bit.

Um, unnatural and not locked in this is going to fly more like a three inch quad versus the cinema up, i think thats. The sort of the goal of this frame so lets go ahead and get this together ill show you what it looks like fully assembled and how much it weighs and then um talk about what im going to be putting into this for the future. Video. In terms of the build all right so um, this is the frame assembled for the most part ill, explain what i put on and what whats not on just a quick note on the 3d printed parts. So some of these things you can buy and some of them are available as stls im not going to go over every single one as to which is which, if you go to the product page about halfway down therell, be some links to where you can either Buy the additional parts like, for example, this gopro mount is definitely for purchase and some of the other ones are stos. You can download and print for yourself and uh yeah. I i didnt go through every single one, but yeah. I just want to make that point clear that some are downloadable and some arent, okay, so heres the whole frame – and i did put on the little motor bumpers here on the bottom, basically like landing feet and these little uh carbon pieces that hold the vertical pieces. You got this is where the motors are going to mount right here.

These were a little difficult to get in. I did have to shave down uh the gap there with the file. This is included uh in case uh yeah. If you have that problem, where it wont uh go in there, you have to file them down a little bit and um. You know so that theyre, nice and level for the motors now getting these vertical plates in here with the screws is a little tricky. So lets see if i can get the camera to show you what one of these look like so theres, a nut that goes into a little slot there and then a screw that comes from the top and getting the nut in here is a bit tedious. So what i did was, i actually put my finger on the bottom side and let the gravity hold the nut in the slot, and then i put the screw in through the top and then screwed it in and obviously theres a lot of them. So it is a bit tedious, as you can see all these here, so theyre calling this um these m2 screws. They look like this. They call them cushioned in the and the instructions its basically, the the the tops are a little bit wider than your typical m2 screw, so that um they hold the carbon pieces together like that, and so you have all these um and basically just follow the instructions. As um this does in the manual so yeah, so you do these front to back pieces first, so theres one over here front to back and then one over here front to back put those on first and then the two uh pieces that go side to side Will go on top and then you know its its pretty obvious.

So if you put them in backwards, they wont work so its like a jigsaw puzzle and then um. The last parts are these two vertical plates that go in the center that protect the electronics and um Music. If you look at this here, so this is the front theres, the back. You have these little nubs here. This is for these special um 3d printed battery. Straps, so this will hold a certain size im, not exactly sure. I have a couple different ones for smaller and bigger batteries, but i think im just going to use the battery strap. You have a battery pad here on the back, so obviously they put the battery in the back to balance the weight of the gopro here in the front, and you can either use this piece here and then use like a like a standard gopro with, like the Gopro two prong mount and they go into this uh these two pieces right here like so and then you have to use some m2 standoffs in the print here. Those are also included. You get four of them or you can get this. You can buy this mount as well. This is for hero8, it looks like, and you can put the standoffs in the holes there and then um mount the camera in here. Like so, and it looks like this one, this mount has an adjustable angle. I think you have three different angles to choose from, so this is for the mount in the front.

The width here of the camera area – um is 20 millimeters, so its you know like theyre, targeting like the dji camera. If you want to use that, but you can use theres some included spacers, you can use if you want to use a 19 millimeter micro camera. Instead, all the carbon pieces here are one and a half millimeters thick. So this top piece is one half millimeters. All the side bracing pieces are one half millimeters. So if youre wondering about that, and in terms of like the stiffness of the frame, its not super stiff – i mean you can you can see its got a fair amount of flex here. So i want to see what it looks like when the motors are in um, but yeah they uh, it could be, could be a good thing or a bad thing. It depends on how you know i mean its not super flexible, but in terms of crashing it. The flexibility will help well minimize the damages if theres any, but the flexibility also can affect the flight characteristics. So something to be aware of so theres mounting points here for your electronics on the top plate so 20 by 20s. Here, uh on the front and the back, so i think the back here is for like a vista or something like that, so your 20 by 20 stack is going to go in here, which means that you have to mount your your route, your motor wires, where The ones in the back here have to be longer or youre gon na have to use some extenders, so um put building this in terms of your electronics could be a little tricky and youre gon na probably youre gon na have to take these braces off.

So theres um three screws for each of the two braces the two vertical plates here in the center. It could be possible to get in there and do some soldering and building um without taking it apart, but because it is kind of an open error design. But it might be a little bit tricky so yeah doing the actual build of this um could be a little tricky, but you know taking those six screws out taking the vertical plates out and then go ahead and do your build. You should be fine there with. I dont think these outer plates are gon na really get in your way too much and then um your mount, your motors, your stack, uh your fpv system and then puts your vertical plates back in and you should be good to go and lets see how much It weighs all right so were coming just a little over 64 grams, with all the parts that i have in here. Currently, obviously, you put in electronics, gopro mounts all that stuff its going to weigh a lot more. So i dont know what the final bill is. Going to look like it, thats going to be in the next video and obviously well try it out with the uh tpu ducks as well theres. I think these just kind of press in yeah, so the ducks they just pop in like this just theyre, just friction, fit and um. You know obviously theyre gon na alter the thrust a little bit here, im, not sure if thats going to help or not.

I suppose that they designed it to wood for those you guys dont want the duct design, but of course it adds additional weight yeah. So just the four little tpu duck pieces are 22 grams. So and i threw that on 64 grams and 22 grams and now were you know, were coming in at uh, 80 86 grams, with the tpu ducks all right. So thats going to do for this video im going to probably do a build with the 2004 motor setup um and probably just a regular 20 by 20 stack. I might do a single, like a zeus, 35 on one flight controller board, glad to see what kind of kind of parts i have lying around to put in this, but yeah its going to be a little while before i can get around to building these. Because im really behind on all of my builds, i have a couple of builds in the queue already, so i got to do those first before i get back to this. One just wanted to show you guys the frame you guys can check it out, links in the description and um yeah. I think itll be a good flyer because it its light and it doesnt have a lot of obstructions for the motor thrust, even though its not a pressure setup, alright, thats gon na do it for this video.
