The Clone is strong with this one.


Innovative? Really?

I guess they couldn't help but copy the design ideas from DQuad's Obsession frame.

Clones have their place, but to claim "innovation" is a bold faced lie.

DQuad's Obsession frame is definitely a pioneer pushing forward to an intelligent minimal design !

New frames take different inspirations of elements all the time man, I'm glad dquad obsession created this amazing frame,
and showcased this great design and ideas.

It's natural to take different ideas and elements from other frames it happens often.

Definitely a clone, but not nearly as nicely done. I see nowhere for a lock nut inside the aluminum brackets, so they are threaded? Meh, i'd still buy the dquad.

they definitely took some design cues from the obsession, but i actually like some of the improvements they made. while better thought out than the dquad, there's still plenty about this i don't like. WHEN these things break, i have a bad feeling it will be total annihilation. the arm will break and the aluminum will twist because of the way everything is tied together. the electronics stack should be relatively safe tho.

I was surprised how weak expensive frames that I bought in the past were, and sometimes the cheaper ones may surprise you.
It really depends how lucky you are when you crash, how you crash can make a difference.

I use GEPRC frames for a while now, and they are not amateurs, they invest in their kits and frames.

Hope this one will be a success story

After you fix the video issue - Use this version of the link: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHkdZGV3yZk" so we could play it in the post itself

Thanks

I saw a video on youtube so I believe its yours. However I don't know if ordering straight from geprc will be better than ordering from banggood.

They still dont have it on stock.
