Very interesting.............so if I'm looking at this correctly the 2nd bolt is in a slot and friction holds the arm in place, but in a crash the bolt will slide in this slot. Ingenious!

To fix, you simply loosen the bolt, slide it back into position and re-tighten. Sure beats having to replace zip ties\nylon bolts. Only improvement I can see is maybe installing a squat lightweight wingnut-type fastener so you won't need tools to loosen\tighten the nut. A spring-loaded slot may work too but the existing design looks great.

Yes the second (outer) bolt on the arm slides along the slot to absorb even the most severe crash. This concept works really well to save bolts and arms from breaking as you said. To reset the arms, you simply 'yank' them back to the original position, there's no need to loosen any screws

bt408 and drclawscat: Could you provide a summary of how this Strider 250 differs from the Nemesis 250? Built-in OSD and the sliding arms are obvious. What are some other improvements that you guys incorporated into the new design?

Hi Brainstorm, the two airframes are separate design wise in quite a few ways. They both have their place and purpose in the mini world. Both will be supported by us and parts will go up on the RedRotor site soon!

Focusing on this offering:

What really sets the Strider apart from all other frames is the electronics core. Power Distribution, 3s and 4s Regulation with 12v and 5v out, FPV system filtering, plug and play electronics, independent channel control of LEDS/siren, complete OSD engine onboard the frame sends back RSSI readout, load, timers and current/voltage monitoring + more all built into the frame really set it apart.

It's way faster and easier to build since it's all nicely integrated in a single onboard engine. Solder you esc and motor wires, battery lead and you're mostly done with the build aside from plugging in cables to the frame (RSSI, 3 channel input, vtx, cam, etc).

The frame is designed for agility + flight time. With all the electronics onboard the final AUW is easily 80-100+grams less than what you might find on a frame with comparable features. The meticulous airframe design focus ensures it's ultra stiff, weighted well, and durable while featuring vibration isolation only on the camera to give you the most direct responsive flight control/feel.

A couple scenarios to picture:

-Fly with more confidence being able to see your RC link strength, how many amps your motors are pulling, and your battery status!

-If your Strider goes down, activate the strobe and Siren mode to locate it quickly.

-Flying with buddies? Activate different LED patterns on the fly to locate each other and identify who's who.

-Switching from 5" to 6" props for high altitude, efficiency, or maximum thrust in minutes by changing props, loading new settings into your fc, and resetting pivot screws to 6" configuration.

-Traveling? Pull the arms out and fold them either inward or forward to store the Strider in a compact package.

-Crash land? With the slot system, if you land right side up with mainly intact props you can takeoff again without worrying about your props hitting cables or each other and return home. Simply yank the arms forward to put them back into their designated position.

Lookin good!!! My wallet is in the corner crying right now.

I see miniquads all headed this way before too long. Why not? It makes perfect sense to have some of the electronics integrated into a frame element!

Very interesting concept.

Even though the integrated electronics on frame is a great idea, I'm wondering about the strength of this plate and how easily it will damage in a crash

also

price to replace this section?
