The Mitsuko/Mixuko are small symmetrical + and x quads made for minimal weight and drag and maximal adorability.
That is how Andy Shen describes the Mitsuko, a 150 size plus (+) quad fame made for 4" props. The inspiration behind this design was to take all the achievements of the Krieger, but then strip it down and try to get the quad as small as possible, focusing purely agility and maneuverability. The Mitsuko cannot carry an HD cam, a design decision that saves on weight and allows for a faster quad. This quad is perfect for tight spaces such as small parks or fields, or wooded areas. Perfect for those of us who do not have access to large open fields.
Like the Krieger, Mitsuko has variable cam tilt with tool-free adjustability. This makes it easier for beginners who are not used to flying at top speeds. You can start off with a 20 degree tilt, and then increment over time as you get faster and faster. The max tilt is 45 degrees.
The + shape of the quad gives it unique handling abilities, with much less yaw control required to make tight turns.
With a 30mm of stack space for the receiver, power board, flight controller, and video transmitter, the Mitsuko can be considered an advanced build.
Andy Shen is a renowned racing frame designer based out of New York City. His frames are known for their well thought out efficiencies in design and aerodynamics.
Andy names some of his frames after characters on the show Archer. Mitsuko is the virtual girlfriend of the mad scientist on the show, Krieger.
