Looking for an FPV racing frame that will stand out from the crowd but still have the durability and all the features of a regular frame? The HobbyKing™ Robocat 270mm racing drone definitely ticks all those boxes!
The Frame is manufactured from super tough 4K weave carbon fiber and is supported with aircraft grade anodized aluminum frame stacks which make this frame incredibly rigid and strong. The arms of the quad are CNC cut from 3mm plate while the upper, lower and center decks are cut from 1.5mm plate.
The Robocats most striking feature is its Lexan Body shell which is supplied in several colors, yellow, orange, black, green, white and clear. The clear body shell is perfect for those who wish to customize the quad with there own color scheme's and designs. The frame also has a unique rotating design which opens and allows easy access to your electronics without the need to disassemblle the whole frame just to change a single component.
The RoboCat's frame design provides mounting positions for all of the individual components of your install including a unique FPV, SMA vertical transmitter mount. The lower deck provides plenty of space for your Naze / CC3D or equivalent flight controller along with a distribution board or breakout cable set. The FPV camera mount is angled upward to provide an optimized view while flying in high speed race conditions.
The center deck has been designed to house and protect your LiPoly battery and it can easily accommodate 3~4 cell packs up to 2200mAH. The RoboCat's frame also includes a unique XT60 bracket which will protect your battery cables in the event of any high speed collisions or crashes. The motor mounts of the RoboCat have 16~19mm bolt hole spacing meaning both 18~22 size motors can be fitted.

The orange con this quadcopter is more od a burnt orange versus a regular orange. Quad is high quality and fits very well together.Went together quite well, although assembly instructions were a bit jumbled. Thick carbon pieces means it's very durable and will take a crash very well. The body shell looks very nice. Lots of room for batteries and electronics. Although, if you're planning to run a wider flight controller like the KK board it will NOT fit, far too wide. I had to ditch the KK for a Naza. It's definitely a lot heavier than the FPV250 frame. I'm not sure if I'll like having a 2200mah battery in there. I'm running the baby beast motors and simonk esc's. I'll most likely run 1500mah 3S.Great Looking Quadcopter, Carbon fiber looks of very good quality. The frame is easy to put together and super stiff. It weighs exactly 190g as advertised. FC can me mounted on the carbon plate on top of the battery location. Overall a great quality quadcopter with great looks.
