Looks a lot like the SteadiDrone qu4d...
You are right, but be sure it wasn't the goal ! We made the same observation, the day we replace the carbon fiber top plate by plexiglass. But unfortunately, it was hard to do differently. Differences are made on details... ;-)
But sorry to say, I have to support Hasufel on this one. The colors of the motor mounts, the folding locking mechanism, the plexi top cover and recessed GoPro mount is very close to the QU4D.
Imitation is the best form of flattery I suppose?
If some ideas intersect, is they should probably be good.
Thank you for support.
Slap a brushless gimbal on there, like the Disco Pro, and I'd be very interested in buying one!. Looks very nice, but in the demo video it is clear that it is inferior to brushless gimbal frames. I'm very sorry to rain on your parade. :)
You are flying in what seems to be wind free conditions, but still the video shows small indications of jelloing, and the image of course tilts as you make course corrections etc. For just another $50-100 you should be able to supply it with an integrated brusless controller etc. Or did you consider this and opt not to go that path?
Other than that, very good looking.
Thank you for your comment Magnus,
We are currently completing two different types of brushless gimbal. We are finishing details on the second one. This frame has been engineered to be upgraded very easily with small kits. We will update when ready.
The final aim is to allow users to configure the frame according to their needs and budget. We are very focused on prices, our priority is to get the highest quality for the best price, without forgetting design.
I can assure you that there is no jello effect, what gives you this impression is probably the shadow of the propeller on the GoPro lens. This video is made with raw footage, without stabilisation (gimbal or software), and half have been recorded in normal arm mode.
There you go! With a gimbal this will be awesome! Any hint on pricing and availability yet?
I looked again, did not see the Jello this time. There was some other image blur in the high altitude scene which I first saw as Jello, but is something else. Probably Vimeo compression. Sorry about that.
All infos very soon !
Always liked the SteadiDrone design, particularly their motor clamp antivibration scheme.
The ability to handle larger props and slower low KV pancake motors is also a real plus as you can get much better efficiency and fly longer.
Great design, I look forward to seeing your pricing and how you are packaging it.
Are you planning on selling as frame kits or as RTF or ARF only?
Thank you for the compliment Gary.
We plan to sell only kits, at the moment.
