Following on from the popular Diatone Blade 250 racer is the Diatone Micro 180. It offers all you have come to know and respect of its bigger brother but in a fun micro size. Made from super durable carbon fiber it is packed with excellent features at a fantastic price.
The frame has been designed to be both clever and aesthetic, it has 30mm mounting holes top and bottom so that you can mount all the standard hardware. There is plenty of room both inside and on top for equipment that is readily available. The cut-outs have been strategically placed to accommodate the FPV components including the camera and antenna stalk. The arms are adjustable to allow you to choose which size propellers you wish to use.
The frame comes with an integrated power distribution board with 5V stepdown, nylon posts, nylon nuts and bolts, fiber washers and fixing screws.

I´ve rebuild my Blade200qx with this Frame , ( after i crashed the original "glass"-frame ) , powered by 1306 3100KV motors and 4045 props.
I also replace the 20mm Spacers with 10mm ones , battery on top , FPV , 35g less weight than my orginal Blade, all works fine. ;)Nice little frame and perfect for 4" props. I like the notches and cutouts in the arms and upper plate. It gives you more options for wire routing and configuration. The PDB works as expected. I've had some pretty nasty crashes with this thing, and the carbon fiber has stayed in great shape. The only thing I have had trouble with is the connection between the aluminum spacers and the frame itself. The spacers seem to take a lot of force on a crash, and I've sheared off a couple screws. I think my next frame will have a uni-body bottom plate. Otherwise, I'm glad I got it.I have this 180mm blade, and I like it. Mine has dys 1104 4000kv, xm10a, and a naze32, I built it to use 2 ans 3s. The thing fly's pretty good. I only just put it together a few days ago, so not really tuned it or flown it much(wind/rain/hail...), or crashed it. It seems to be fairly strong, bottom plate could be a little thicker in my opinion. The included pdb is light and the 5v out works fine. I think the frame looks good. The only issue I have had is with motor/esc synch, but thats another story......
