Diatone have come out with another excellent quad. It comes as a full piece 2.5mm carbon fiber frame giving great strength and durability.

There is a 20mm gap between frames that is enough to mount all your electronics.
Comes with a Ver5.0 Power Hub. This can power a 5V or 12V camera and a 5V or 12V LED without any ripple and noise. It also supports an amazing 3-6S LiPoly input. Another excellent innovation is the FPV camera mount. It is easily adjustable without removing the camera or using tools. It is suitable for all the 11.5x11.5 square micro camera’s on the market.

This is actually a really well made frame.
Unfortunately in my delivery someone forgot to drill the fourth pocket in one of the arms, making the baseplate asymmetric. Since it was a pain to ship this frame from China to Germany it is not worth the effort to try to exchange it...This is actually a really well made frame.

Da dieser aus "einem guss" ist ( die untere Carbonplatte ) kann einfach nichts wackeln oder sich lose rappeln. ( 2 Platten , 12 Schrauben und 6 Bolzen )
Leider passen 2204 Motoren nicht wie bei "required" angegeben !!
Die Bohrungen sind 9/12 mm wie in den "Specs" angegeben.
Betreibe diesen Frame mit 12A ESCs und 1804 2480KV motoren.
Eine Fatshark 700 TVL Cam passt vorne , ohne Diatone CAM-halter , gerade noch rein.
Abstürze hat mein Frame ich schon mehrere hinter sich, bis jetzt ist alles Top !
mfgIf you are looking for a robust, well built and thought out 180 size frame then you can not go past this one. I've built it up with the recommended gear although you won't find 1806/3100kv motors anywhere. I used 1806/2280kv with 4025 but will be changing the motors out to 1306/3100kv very shortly. Motor/Speedy/Prop combos for this are a bit tricky but I reckon you will do well with 1806/2280kv and 4045 props with an 18A or 20A speed controller. I'll play around with the combos and see what happens. Be aware that the mount holes for the motors are really not designed for the larger motors!!
All that aside the frame is rigid, and very simple to build. Using the 600tvl mini camera mount makes setting up for fpv a breeze. The frame has some clever "holes and slots" for mounting antenna, battery, camera and the like. I set mine up with a Naze32 using Cleanflight and the PID's were not far off from "standard" to get a good stable flight.
I think a good frame for the money and well thought out - it's a winner! Just really think about what motors as all the recommended are probably not what you should look for... HK you need to do this frame justice with appropriate motor suggestions - Maybe it's just me but 1806/3100kv motors do not exist and if they do then they must be stacked up with the hens teeth.
Cheers.The frame looks good enough the product description needs to be updated. The note on required items notes 2204 motors as an option but I can confirm that they will not fit. So just beware if you order one of these 2204 motors won't work.
