It’s been a while since my last quadcopter post – mainly because i’ve been in the UK and didn’t take it with me.

The day that I left for the UK, the new frame that I ordered for the quad arrived.  Every time I upgrade to a new frame, the quad seems to shrink in size.

This new frame has quite a small wingspan, resulting in a downsize in propellors to a smaller 5″ diameter. It does however have a much lower weight footprint. Weighing in at only 58g, it’s 20g lighter than the old frame and has much more room for cable management and a nice place underneath (which I’ve modified) to hold the battery safely during flight.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with the new frame, however do hope it will be wide enough to still be able to freely manoeuvre the quad.
