I know its sad that you make an effort to design a frame and even before yours is available its already cloned and ready to buy at other stores.

On the other hand I think that even considering the developing cost, frames shouldn't cost more than 50 - 60 TOP.

There are just too many good options out there, that's my take on it anyway.

Even though I have to take my hat off to frame designers (like Shendrones) for coming up with great innovative designs, I can't justify ordering one, because of the insane import laws and taxes in Finland. A 100€ frame would be over 150€ after customs and taxes... plus the customs process takes about a month. The cheap china frames are not effected by the import laws so they get here in a week and cost 20€...

My guess is: because almost all the frames are manufactured in china

I just broke a quad frame and i needed a cheap one to rebuild, a friend had one of these as a spare so he sold it to me, gotta say i'm really pleased, too bad i didn't have the money to buy the real thing from Skitzo but gotta say he did a great job on the design.

Was a quick build, took me like 4 hours to do the whole thing, with disarming the broken one, sanding the frame, and building it again.

The inside has so much room but it doesn't look like, the camera mount is too close to the FC but i was using a Lux FC so it didn't bother a lot, i just had to solder the wires the other way so they won't touch the camera, i could fit a Foxeer Arrow on it with no problem at all, i have a KingKong Rammus 200mm that has the holes on side plates for an HS1177 but the arrow is too big to fit, well on the Genius 215 fits pretty well; i'm also using a Hubosd H PDB so i had to do the same thing, solder the wires the other way to make room for the camera, even the PDB isn't squared it won't touch the standoffs or the camera side plates.

As far as quality is pretty good, just needs to be sanded down on the edges, the bottom plate has holes too small so the battery strap won't fit, but you can run it under the PDB, i used some foam so my battery doesn't smash against those bolts, there is also a 3D printed model on Thingiverse that has bigger holes for the strap, countersunk bolt holes and also some spacers on the arms since they have a huge gap.

Talking about the arms, when you tighten the screws on the bottom plate they won't move at all (i've seen people saying they do)

Package came with some extra bolts which is always nice to have if you don't use threadlock.

The original bottom plate is cheap in case someone want's it http://www.getfpv.com/multi-rotor-fr...tom-plate.html

Almost forgot, if you want it to be like super neat, get this XT60 holder, just need to drill two holes on the bottom plate instead of using the ziptie to attach the battery connector http://www.banggood.com/CNC-XT60-XT9...l?rmmds=search

Appreciate the information, great tips !
Thanks for sharing

BTW, is it true the arms won't touch each other at the bottom ?

This frame is kinda garbage really. The only reason is the arms do not touch in the center!
No matter how much you tighten them you can move them around. Center insert would probably fix it, really the arms should be a little longer and but up against each other. I wouldn't rebuy this frame.

Fail, maybe when they cloned it they only got pictures where the bottom plate hides the arms inner tips
