Build Comments

This frame is built for racing and accordingly is not as strong as the BOLT250.  If you are into hard core proximity or heavy 2206+ setups, you should be aware of the breakage risk! 

When comparing this frame to others, please factor in the impact of the symetrical motor (x) pattern. eg. If we swung arms closer together, in a non symetrical pattern, this frame would be equivalent to a 190 size.  On the 180, you are looking at an equivalent of a 160 size.

The motor mount holes are on the 210 do not incorporate a 16x12 pattern for 1806 motors. We do this to maximize the strength of this arm section. You can however extend the slots to fit these motors if you wish. Always use washers for the motor mount bolts, especially with the smaller M2 screws for the 1806 motors.

The photos are of both the 210 and 180 versions.  The only difference between the frames is the bottom plate with all other hardware and CF plate interchangeable.

As these vertical CF plates are integral to the design, we have kept the tolerances as tight as we can. Accordingly, some sanding of the tabs for the vertical plates may be required to fit into the slots. Please avoid oversanding for a sloppy fit. Always include the vertical plates and bumpers in your build, they are a key structural design feature.  

The battery strap MUST go around the entire frame body and not just the top plate.  This is a key design feature which clampts the two plates togther with the vertical plates.  We recommend the longer BOLT battery straps (30cms) for this reason. 

Recommended Components

All electronics, wiring, motors and props are not included and can be purchased separately. Please note that this quad is specifically designed to take a 25mm mini cam (eg. HS1177) or the micro version. 

Some suggested components with details of these items available on the specific product pages:


Cobra 2204 KV2300  *   (Most popular, for good reason, oustanding motor and a good price)
Cobra 2204 KV1960   (light weight 4S with 6in props) 
Cobra 2206 KV2100  (Racing power house, 4S and 6in props)
DYS 1806 KV2300  (Best value motor on the market. Recommended for new flyers.)
Tiger 1806 KV2300 (See BO option, same but cheaper)
BO 1806 KV2300 (1806 performer, 6in on 3S and 5in on 4S) 
BO 2206 KV2350 (OMG, can  your battery handle this monstor)
ZTW Blue 12A  (cheap, reliable, proven history, comes with BEC)
ZTW Spider 12 Opto (cheap, reliable, small, proven history)
ZTW Mini 18A Opto  * (tiny, oustanding performance and price. Better than SN20)
Little Bee 20A * (new kid on the block, very high performance but less track record for reliability as yet)
DYS SN20 (Very popular, good performer, some reliability issues for extended power session on 4S)
DYS SN30 (Very popular, good performer, handles 6S well)
Naze 32 Acro  *  (Is there another?  The rest are clones)
D4R Receiver  *  (Great for Frsky users)
HS1177 Camera  *   (Nothing to think about, just get this one)
VTX Pitail *   (SMA or RPSMA)
Battery Strap  * (Great non slip coating)
14AWG Wire  *  (Pigtail for battery)
18AWG Wire  * (ESC power cables)
XT60 Plugs  *  (For battery connection)
D-Sun Reg  * (Provides reg voltage to electronics and also acts as a LC filter. So useful and cheap, buy two!)
Aomway Antenna (SMA or RPSMA) * (Slightly more expensive but tough as... Match connector with your VTX)

* Suggested build for most flyers on 3S and 4S.  For newbies, we recommend the BOLT250.

We are unable to offer VTX for sale in Australia.  For overseas buyers, we suggest this or this (sma or rpsma).  The 200mw is our preference though.
