I really like the simplistic look of that airframe.  And the fact the gopro mount is almost central..  Looking forward to this one. Thumbs Up

Thank you Steve, we have done a lot of internal tests. Our team pilots love this airframe and we think you will too. Smile

Really nice looking frame! Is it a Deadcat design? What do you mean with "to avoid PID problems that some X-frames may have"?

I have a couple of design tips to make it more crash resistant from my experience for next version but I guess you guys have already though of it:
1. Add sideplates for the camera. I have broken the top plate and standoffs on two frames when crashing head on into trees. The sideplates will stiffen up the whole box design.
2. Standoffs behind the sindeplates if it is room.
3. Maybe a rubber grommet around the antenna hole whould be good so you dont cut the antenna cable.

I guess may have used deadcat design to keep front arms wider, but back arms closer to keep the same motor distance from center on all arms. To be honest I had more PID tuning problems with this design then on typical H and X frames.
Find me on Youtube and Instagram. I currently fly: NOX5, NOX5RAirblade Assault 130 and drive a scrap RC car

Appreciate so much for your comments and suggestions Oyvinla. This frame is designed by our team pilots and have done a lot of internal tests to ensure the performance. And as per our tests and comparsion, we believe PID tunning of this frame is much easier than most of X frames. 

Actually we thought about adding the sideplates before the final revision. We hope to keep this airframe a simple design and have stripped it down to the bare essentials. The sideplates can be an option, but not necessary. The white 3D printed part has the function of the sideplate does. And also KL200RACE has a protection for antenna already as you can see from the pictures, but yes, I think a rubber grommet is good idea, maybe also protected with more tapes would be easier.  Smile

That is different from Deadcat design.

Battery placement ? mounted on top between 4 standoffs only ? Think you're gonna need a lot of replacement top plates in stock Wink

The battery can be strapped to the bottom as well.
