xRotor FPV Quad Frame


Here is the latest in the xRotor Quad frames from BlueSkyRC.com -- I have been flying the beta xRotor FPV Quad for a few weeks now and simply loving it. The design was partial to mounting a GoPro Hero on the nose, but any FPV camera can be used. There is plenty of room for gear on the nose and tail. The frame is designed for X configuration flying.

Frame can be found here:

Here is my first FPV video I made with it:

Sorry, I missed the props on the list. This motor is perfect for an 8x4.5 prop. I am using the 8" Gaui:

They seem to be a perfect match for the Motor / ESC / battery.

I did some video from the ground so you can see the frame in flight. This is using the MultiWiiCopter (bare board) with a genuine Wii Motion Plus for gyro only.

Qrome, This frame is the same size/specs as the sport just with the larger bottom plate?

I'm thinking of ordering a second frame for spares but was thinking it might be fun to have this to mount the gopro on every now and then.

Yes, The xRotor FPV Quad is all the same specs as the xRotor Sport. The roll cage has a little more room under it than the original xRotor Sport -- but all the part are interchangeable, even the roll cage.
It is perfect for the GoPro.

So ?

Is it built yet?

Hehe

Im waiting for mine to arrive cant wait

just deciding on what motors to use

I had a set of 4 motors on standby but one of them is weak compared to the others

need to get a new set as they are no longer in stock at HK

Thinking of using the RC timer motors
2830 1000kv with the Gaui 8x4 Props
with Turnigy plush 25amp ESC's

Or do you think the 750Kv would be better?

I may want to go up to 10inch props at some stage which motors would be good on both prop sizes?

Cheers

Ben
