V2 Version: We've updated the material to increase the durability of the Cockroach frame. This special new version comes in Teal and Ruby, two new colors to the Cockroach Brushless frame lineup!
Frustrated with constantly fixing struts and breaking frames, we set out to find something better.
We worked with a number of manufacturers and after numerous prototypes and revisions, we are proud to introduce the Cockroach Super-Durable Brushless Frame for Tiny Whoop style quads.
Traditional Looks and Geometry maintain those flight characteristics you are used to and ensure easy compatibility with the Beebrain as well as most other popular flight controllers.
Lightweight and Durable. We found a more forgiving and resilient material that doesn't sacrifice in weight or stiffness. Struts and other key support components have been redesigned to distribute and dissipate stress from crashes and falls. Total weight 5.1g
Easy and Inexpensive. None of this is any good if its super difficult to use and super expensive. So we made sure we set out to make something affordable. Key tolerances have also been fine tuned to make installation and removal much easier.
If you want a heavy and tanky frame, go for it, but... I strongly regret buying one of each color. The claim that they've found a stronger more resilient material doesn't apply to this frame. It in fact weighs 1.4g/37% heavier than the v1 frame! The sticky-backed felt pads are negligible to that weight comparison. Finally, the claim that, "Struts and other key support components have been redesigned..." is also not true. I've scrutinized my v1 frames to the v2's and there are no differences dimensionally. The translucent colors sure are nice though.
Wish I never bought one, let alone two.
Brittle piece of crap broke in two places within the first two hours.
No response to the warranty request going on 10 days. Customer service at NBD ranks dead last out of the other vendors I regularly order from.
Perfect fit to swap my Beta65 into! Easy to reinstall everything and seems a little more durable.
Best design frame on the market for sure! even tho its heavier then others but the quality and detail is the top you can find on the market.
My humminbird frame cracked at the screw posts. This one so far has been holding up. I just wish there were more colors when I ordered it.
