The new Carbon arrow shaft and blue 1 1/2" foam board.
All parts are glued together with epoxy. The foam was cut with a RotoZip, razor blades, and sandpaper.
The raw quad chassi weights only 165g and is very ridged. About 12 hrs. to build.
Bare weight 165g
Flying weight: 787g ( 1 battery)
964g (2 bateries) Still 30 grams lighter
I moved all of my electronic from this quad
which weights 375g bare. ( HEAVY )
Flying weight: 994g
The size is the same but the weight difference is 215 gram.
With all the weight saved I will increase flight time and allow for larger batteries and / or camera.
