The frame that changed it all. Soma from ImpulseRC took his already inspired design for the Warp quad and made it into an FPV frame. Supposedly he spent 6 months designing the thing and we are glad to say that the effort has paid off. Now easily one of the top FPV frames out there, it has some really key design features which set it apart from the rest: the arms for example all rest against one another so that in a crash the stress is spread. Other features include easy board camera mounting, as well as a really well designed integrated PDB.
This revamp of the QAV 210 is Lumenier’s answer to the Alien. Also featuring the X style of arms this edition from Lumenier is certainly something to behold. In all honesty there is very little difference between the QAV and the Alien, the main reason we put the Alien first to the QAV is because here at Drone Insider we prefer the Alien’s PDB; we are also not very keen on the little rubber things on the bottom the arms, it’s extra weight and we don’t see the point also means that those of you who like to mount your ESCs on the bottom the arm can’t do so
This is truly a novel design for a frame and an incredible one at that. If you want a small nippy reliable quad this is for you. The design is truly inspired and houses all your components perfectly, even your motors. The only down side is, it doesn’t work with wide or large ESCs like RG20s, you have to use kiss or the SN20. If you keep this quad light and clean it will not let you down. A nice little touch is the 3D printed side to the quad which gives a bit of extra customisation.
The LRC Race is arguably the lightest FPV frame on the market currently. Coming in at a shockingly feather weight of 68g it is well into 180 territory. Run the by pro pilots like MattyStuntz this frame has proven its’ self to be highly capable. The LRC has single 3mm carbon spar arms for extra strength bolted onto a low 250 sized main body. Like the Sigan this quad must be kept light, the heavier you run it the more likely you are to run into broken arms.
The MQC One is the perfection of the classic H Quad. It features rounded arms, which help reduce stress on key components in crashes. Other frames feature sharp edges on key components, which act as stress risers which ncreases the risk of breaking carbon components in a crash. In addition, the MQC One offers full lifetime warranting on all carbon parts, so if you are unlucky enough to break an arm, you are covered. Nifty features such as holes for battery straps and SMA Extension make this the ultimate frame for those who want to run the tried and tested ‘H Quad’.
