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, can definitely tick 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 unqiue 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 pre-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.

I expected missing parts, but too my surprise no missing parts and nothing damaged.
the instructions in the form of an exploded diagram was easy enough to follow. The cowlings needed the holes enlarged, so i used a small tipped soldering iron. Using a knife or drill could cause the plastic to break. The only thing i would do next time is install seat A into the upper section before screwing it onto the lower section of the frame.Sch?nes Frame mit guten Crasheigenschaften. Die Lexanh?lle sollte aber nicht allzu fest angeschraubt werden, da diese sonst einrei?en kann.mancava qualche vite. per il resto okottimo telaio. facile da assemblare e molto bello da vedersi. unica nota negativa che la fc naze fa difficolt a starci perch i connettori dell'rc sporgono da un lato e il tettuccio non si chiude a causa della carrozzeria laterale. ci vanno aggiunti dei distanziali sul lato sx.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.Update from me on the spacers. I suggest buying 4 of these on purchasing the quadcopter. It will save u a lot of grief in the future!
also remember to buy a pack of m3 x 8mm allen bolts to go with itLooks great and the build quality is really good on most of the bits. Really strong and good mounting points for cameras etc. However I suggest that u try and buy some aluminium tube (8mm should do) because the top cowl of the frame is made out of carbon fibre with the lexan bodyshell over the top but is then held together with NYLON?????? WTF? i broke one of the nylon things by accident on istallation and on the first crash which only occurred due to a fault esc and so the motor cut out (essentially fall from 10 feet) all of the nylon supports broke. >:( was very annoyed and now am in the process of making y own versions. I will post back If I manage to find a good substitute
