why all the vitriol towards the guy wanting to use G10?

Everyone has their own theory regarding CF versus non RF blocking material.
Any of you who have ever flown composite gliders or large gas planes know that its a must to keep the CF away from any receivers so as to not shadow the path.

Take any 2.4ghz receiver and place it inside a CF fuse and see what sort of range you get.
It will be short. This is why most all 2.4ghz vendors have receivers with extra long ant wires specifically designed for carbon fiber installations.

With the size and complexity of this new frame, coupled with a large gimbal, thats an awful lot of CF to block signal path.

Most droidworx and Cinestar frames do not have all the design elements that this frame obviously has. They are usually very flat and straightforward frames.

This mother of all frames is not your run of the mill design as one can easily see.

If it were made of CF throughout, I'd certainly hang my Futaba diversity receivers off one of the booms pointing down so it had a clear path.

Lets try to not be discouraging to someone coming out with something new. Not very friendly I think.
