The positioning of the FC looks a little odd in some of the pics. Positioned way forward like that would have an interesting effect on the flight?? Hard to see where the intended position is, and may get in the way of those rods that run from the camera back to the battery holder. FC looks like it should be under the raised protective thingo back where the rear arms join the frame. That would put it around center. Nice concept but not enough information. Looks like Judar is the guinea pig ... when it arrives best post some pics, thoughts and maybe some video..... please.

The only real info i can get from the site with google translate is...

This frame is a balance between simplicity and performance, it is a simple frame with a GoPro support and a stabilization system that allows you to semi-professional performance.

The frame has a passive stabilization system known as balanced beam using the mass of the camera and battery as inertia to stabilize the image, a system widely used in film and video professional.

Stereo Headphone Jack
110 mm high
Width 70 mm
Weight 120g
8 mm deep


so yeh.... not much

but yes i will take pics do a review and vids when i get the frame

Frame looks good Judar. What is the function of the plate "arrowed".
Where is the flight controller supposed to mount?

To be centered between the motors, it looks like the flight controller should mount under the plate that suspends the camera/battery. Is there room and or provision to mount it there?

Hello, I just bought this quad. In a few days I receive it. The engines will be Turnigy 2217 1050kv or EMP 2830/13 850KV with Graupner 10x5 propellers and Rabbit flight controller. Lipo 3S 3000mA 30C. And the gopro hero HD. FPV Transmitter and receiver 5.8 GHz and 200 mW.

I can not wait to have it!

Greetings!
