Want to rule the drone racing world? Then let Diatone Innovations help you get there with the Tyrant! A new approach to racing quadcopter design that delivers superb performance across three racing classes.
Available in 150, 180 and 215 size frame kits the Tyrants are all manufactured from super strong carbon fiber composite material featuring a 4mm thick, machined carbon-fiber, one-piece main frame that is almost indestructible. All kits come with an integrated PDB (with Mini V2 5V 2A BEC) that fits in the super tough frame, reducing overall weight, improving robustness and making maintenance much easier.
All you need to do is add your chosen flight controller, ESCs, motors, propellers, battery and receiver to provide all the power you want. You will also need to add your chosen video gear to make it into an excellent FPV racer.
The Diatone Tyrant 180 frame kit provides an excellent platform for your FPV racer.

Overall, a wonderful product that could be a little bit cheaper. The frame is really thick and sturdy, it can withstand a rookie like me so far. The frame is *very* tight, you have to plan well for the electronics. I had to use extra plastic spacers to elevate the upper plate a little bit so that I could stack my 4in1 ESC on top of a Naze32. The leds are very bright. The beeper works flawlessly.
The PDB is awesome, it is very convenient, and provides 5v, 12v as well as VBAT at multiple points on the frame. A tip: solder stuff on the PDB when it is not on the frame as much as possible, since the frame just sucks away the heat and it can get difficult to solder the closely spaced positive/negative pads.
The camera mount is nice, but it is a bit loose for new generation cheap AIO cameras, so you might have to put a piece of heatshrink between the lens and the camera mount for a tight fit. Also note that the camera 'cage' might be too tight for some larger cameras.
