After spending hundreds of hours building and testing the WizeArtz Hero, foldable quadcopter, I decided to take some time out and sink some R&D into something lean, mean, and a lot simpler.
The RiotQuad is born.
Motor to motor 380mm, and boasting an immensely strong main sandwich of 1.5mm plates clamping onto 6mm G10 arms and spacers, this 275gram (naked) aircraft can take up to 10" props.
Built around the excellent CC3D, and the roadmap to also include the APM and the Revo flight controllers, initial flight tests show it to have stable flight characteristics, and be very agile and fast!
Frame kit is about to be handed over to another local pilot for parallel testing and a build log, before hopefully releasing it for sale in the Oceania region.
Test flight video will come, once I've shoe-horned the GoPro on :)
