Iris Details: #2 Injection molded arms and Legs



Here are some close-ups of the arms and legs. They are made from DuPont Zytel®, very strong and resilient in a wide range of temperatures.

Guillermo had some break force testing done, the results were impressive:

In the center it takes 204 lb (92.5 kg),  and at the tip  772 lb  (350 kg).




Sliding dovetail and set-screw retains the legs, allowing for easy replacement if needed. Picatinny rail mounting system integrated into the bottom of the arms provides endless mounting options for accessories.

  • Do they come with a place to insert some anti vibration material under the motors ?

  • Is the body and arms going to be available for us that have APM's and would like a snazzy body ?


  • Evgenly,

    The ridges on the bottom of the arm are part of the quick release rail system, they are not there to increase strength.

  • ledges on the bottom of the beam is not added strength but increase the weight

  • Alexsey,

    No these are not compatible with the DJI products.


    We are using these prop mounts because they are lighter and run true.

    Very polished and professional looking.  Is that a new prop mounting system I spy?  I say that because I spy no collet.

    Where do the motor wires go, through that channel on the underside?  

  • Plastic is always going to put carbon fiber out of business, once the volume of manufacturing is high enough to justify the molding.

  • NICE!

    Seems like legs are DJI compatible?
