There are a lot of racing quadcopter frames on the market today. Most of us tend to spend our hard earned money on a frame that has been tried and proven by the pilots we look up to. More and more, those frames are created by or co-developed by those pilots. But, if you really do some research, you will find that there are so many other, less popular, but very well thought out, very high quality and very inventive frames that get overlooked regularly by all of us.
For the most part, the basic quadcopter shape and build materials have become a standard, and big innovation in frame design is now limited by material, battery size, and production costs. We do, after all, fly these things like maniacs and regularly crash and break them and therefore, understandably, the cost is very important.
We all have our preferred style of frame and, with such a competitive market for race frames being sold today, how does a company trying to enter that market get their frame noticed? NewbeeDrone set out to answer that question. What we came up with is called The FlyBy.
The FlyBy is a frame designed to be "compatible" with all racing pilot wants and needs in mind. We put into The FlyBy the most amount of flexibility for the pilot while maintaining the fundamentals of a racing frame like weight, aerodynamics, and durability.
- Can be configured to support all battery orientations (top, bottom, toilet top/bottom) while maintaining optimal weight distribution
- When in the top mount toilet top orientation, the frame weight distribution (depending on the size battery) is centered on the prop line and is perfectly balanced on all axis giving the most predictable flight characteristics of any frame on the market as of this write-up
- Compatible and tested with 4-6s batteries
- Can support micro and full-size fpv cameras and the lens is protected from impacts
- Supports motor sizes as small as 1806 and as large as 2307 (bigger if you're into that)
- Antennas mounts are flexible to elevate damage or catching on racing gates.
- Designed around 20x20 electronic stacks (yes, we have found reliable 6s 20x20 4in1 ESC's
- Aluminum or Titanium electronics cage that is easily removed to access electronics
- 6mm thin and chamfered arms that are removable by 2 easily accessed M3 screws
I have been flying this frame for racing for 4 months and personally cannot find something about it I don't like. What do you think?
