The MK.2 Explorer4, Result of an open source frame.

Hey Folks,

I would like to show you the Explorer4 MK.2.

This quad is the result of everyones feedback from the First version about a year ago, I have taken all the input and ideas from the comunity and incorperated them into the design, While still keeping the Unique Vibration dampening aspect of the frame.

Some of the new features are:

  • Hatch on top for better access

  • Easy acces to USB Ports

  • Storm32 gimball controller

  • Improved gimball

  • Optional parts for mounting a 3 axis gimball up front for Yaw stabilisation

  • Larger Battery compartment

  • Center of gravity issue resolved

  • Option to use Aimdroix Extended Arms and larger props

  • Solid bottom mounting plate

Below is a sample video of what to expect with Default settings on the quad and gimball, no pid tuning what so ever. There is also no stabilisation done in the editing process, what you see is what you get.

Take a look at the Website:

Thanks to everyone for the great feedback making this quad frame what it is!!!

  • I will. When I get a spare moment. The frame is built. The old Explorer is dismantled and now I just need a bit more time...

  • Exactly Marc, You have the option of 2 axis or a 3 axis gimball.

    Looking forward to seeing your build!!! be sure to send me some pictures and ill put them on the website.

  • Jerry - the frame accepts a full 3 axis front gimbal mount, even if 2 axis is shown. I have this version of the frame and it should be built in the next week or so.
