Wow, this is what Soma has mentioned he want to produce for a couple of years now.
That is a Warp Quad with integrated FC, vTX, and FPV camera.

Check here for those not knowing about the WQ

Phew... managed to get everything posted in time. Still some cleaning up to go...

Please keep any questions coming. I will try to collate them and have a FAQ on the first page.

The ESC fairings are about 3.5g and completely optional. You can put any ESCs you like on the arms. AUW should is around the 300g mark, just add battery.

Have to jump in the car and get down to the AU nationals now!

I have a few questions:

Does the ZX5 come with the following items already as part of the kit? If not can these items be added to my already existing order? I would hate to pay for shipping on just these few items. Please advise. These items were not up on the website last night.

http://impulserc.com/helix-rgb-led-strip
http://impulserc.com/jst-sh-true-x-s...er-cable-28awg
http://impulserc.com/jst-zh-power-lead-26awg
http://impulserc.com/helix-45-degree...a-plate-cf-2mm
http://impulserc.com/helix-flight-co...-vibration-pad

On the camera plates are those sold as a pair or one plate if so I'll need to order one more of each.


Keep flying and be safe,
Brian

The man is a visionary

First posted about two and a half years ago, around the time people were only just starting to tilt 5 degrees on their H-frames!

The LED strip pads at the back have 5V with heaps of capacity, people are tagging on to those for the AU nationals.

Everything is included, all of the electronics and two of each side plate. You get full support for 30, 45, 60 and HD at 45 in the kit

Congrats on the launch! Very cool frame.

Quick question on the FC...are those holes the standard size? Or designed just for the Helix?

Cheers.
