DRQ250 aka "Mini-D" CF and G10 foldable frame

Hello everybody. After a long time waiting, I have decided to make an All-in-One Mini H Quad frame nicknamed the “Mini-D.” First, I would like to thank Frank aka Sinewavz (on OP forums) for his assistance with this game changing design. Here are some specs of the frame:

The “Mini D” is a Clean/Dirty plate design separated by M3 dampers so you can take jello-free videos with your HD camera. I have flown it numerous times now but have never had any jello issue…so what makes it different? Read on…

3 different thickness of G10 plates were used:

Arms - 3mm thickness and individual, so very easy to change and no need to buy an entire new plate

Dirty plate & NEW - “Belt” design consist of 1.5mm G10

Clean-1.5mm G10

Top plate - 1mm G10

As you know most of the other dirty part designs are almost identical. So I decided to make my own dirty and called it “Belt” design. This has proven to provide an amazingly strong frame while saving both a lot of weight, and allowing for a second dirty plate.

“Mini D” also includes it’s own PDB!! There are both "+" and "-" poles which make it easy to attach your choice of up to 12A ESC’s soldered direct

Adjustable CG (Center-of-Gravity) via changeable dampener positions for the clean section AND also adjustable FC (Flight Controller) positioning

Different Variables for FPV/REC camera:

1. CCD Camera can be used naked with provided camera plate w/ Mobius on top plate
2. CCD camera in metal casing mounted (3 Different position holes for Case)
3. Removable GP2/3 plate can be easily attached to front

Lipo’s used: - (Sunnysky X2204 2300kv Motors used for testing)

Zippy Compact 1300mAh – CCD & Mobius HD
Nano-Tech 1500mAh – CCD & Mobius HD
Gen Ace1800mAh – Used with GoPro3 combo (check weights for GP2)

Frame Weight –140-147 gr (with the 3mm g10arms)
YES…we love this mini and thought, “Why not make it smaller?” So we made it a 250 foldable!! just remove the thumb nuts and fold it. Travel Friendly indeed.

Rock solid & light! Here’s some videos and a list of equipment used, enjoy!

waiting on mine from the boat from Turkey. can't wait til you release the arms for 6" props. That, with the sunnyskys should easily carry a gopro or make for one rocketship with the mobius.

The shop droneframes is based in Turkey. $85US for the frame plus about $13 shipping for me to australia. Very competitively priced which is why I bought it even though I'm still waiting on parts to complete my rd230 build.

Hi,
What flight times are you getting with only FPV gear on?

Is it fairly sturdy and will it survive with no damage when is crashes on grass or soft terrain?

Yep , absolutely sturdy.

I crashed almost 15 times up to now. Just lost the props.

Its arms cant be broken , rock solid.

You can fly up to 10min. with 3s 1800mahs. I have also tried with zippy compact 3s 2200mahs, it can handle.
