So you can't by just the frame? That's to bad! Look cool just the same though

Would consider if they sold it without motors. Everything else seems solid.

Could always sell the motors, tho I agree a motor less kit would be nice

I want to get into FPV, but haven't dipped my toes in the water yet. That video is incredible! Just watching it full screen on my computer made me a little dizzy! I can see that I'm going to have to jump onto the FPV bandwaggon pretty soon.

Ive literally watched this video over 20 times over the past month on facebook you tube and here. This video and the one in France that looked like star wars moon of Endor forest racing is what got me hooked into the quad scene about 6 weeks ago. Built my own 450 quad and its awesome but I cant fly nowhere near that good. I wonder how many people will get into this hobby based solely on those 2 videos. That got me hooked. It seems Immersion RC is like the Traxxas of the quad world. Very awesome indeed. BTW, Limp bisquit sounds pretty good.

The integrated electronics is what makes it what it is. I'm guessing you wouldn't be able to cram a normal FC, OSD and ESCs into it.

What a great platform!
This should most definitely entice thousands to step into the world of FPV, and provide an even playing field at the race course.

Looks like much research and development has been accomplished. I just hope that production can keep up with demand, and spare parts to follow.

Looking forward having one, and able to tell the guys at the field..."Just Go Get One"
everything has been figured out already!

Ordered the race model but I most likely will end up swapping the motors, might have been better to get the other model but hopefully the 1806's are plenty. Was surprised to see it is 285mm, thought it was slightly smaller. From the video looks like there is a connection for running standalone vtx. Although there is no need I am curious about the gps connection, wonder if any ublox will work or if they will produce a proprietary module for it.
