NEW Carbon-Glass-Alu SCORPIO Mini HEXA Frame (WITH PLANS)

I'd like to present a new version of my hexacopter frame.
I've been using prototype version for few months and I'm very satisfied with it.
Since first version some changes and improvements were introduced, that made whole construction more stable and durable.
I hope that you will like the construction.

Original frame was dedicated for Robbe Roxxy 2216/25 motors and GWS 5x3x3 props.
One can use any other motors with sufficiently high kv ofcourse.
Frame motor plates support both 12 and 16 mm spacing between mounting holes in motor.

Here is slight view on frame dimensions and design:

Construction consists of:
- centerplates + arms + motor mount plates.
- battery shelf
- FC protection plate (included but not necessary to be mounted)

Kit looks as follows:
(there are no screws and spacers on the photo - they are included ofcourse)

Frame after assembly:

Fully assembled frame weight: 118g

I'd like to draw your attention to arms composite construction.
Since carbon tube is quite fragile, composite with aluminium is made to strenghten whole arm without much gain on weight.

In front of the frame there are holes allowing to mount GoPro housing or FPV camera.
Both battery plate and FC protection shield have holes allowing installation of accessories/antennas etc as well.

In case of mounting GoPro (but not only then) it is more comfortable to use undercarriage.
Align Trex 450 fits there perfectly and makes landing safer.

Here you can see this frame in flight (at 1:15)

Frame is currently available in shop:
Currently two on stock, in case of backorder lead time is about two weeks.
