More info

This is our new Black Ops race/proximity frame designed to be flown anywhere and still beat the opposition on race day. 

Besides being light weight, this frame has ultra low surface area for reduced wind resistance and high speed performance.  In fact it has only marginally more surface area than our Race series.

Key features are:
Symmetrical motor locations with 4" 5" and 6'" variants
Significantly lower weight than your standard black out style frame yet smaller and stronger:
    4in - 105 grams
   
5in - 112 grams
   
6in - 118 grams

Extensive integrated CF bumper protection system, top and bottom, front and rear.
Lower 30mm profile for strength
Innovative structural system and component layout
High quality components inlcuding 7075 aluminium standoffs and titanium fasteners.
Full compatibility with the Race series 180, 210 and 225. In other words, you can swap base plate systems and arms between the Black Ops and Race series and in any size (BO4, BO5, BO6, Race180, Race210 and Race225).  

Further information on the frame design is contained in the thread on rcgroups.

Build Comments

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:

Xnova 2204 kv2300* (An exceptional motor with 100grams more thrust than the cobra equivalent, great for 5in)
Xnova 2206 kv2000  (A beast of motor with amazing thrust, recommended for 5.5in or 6in)
Xnova 2206 kv2300 (Higher rpm power house, great for 5in)
Cobra 2204 KV2300   (Popular and a good price)
Cobra 2206 KV2100  (Racing power house, 4S and 5.5 or 6in props)
BO 2206 KV2350 (OMG, can  your battery handle this monstor.  Our favourite big air motor with the Bolt210)
ZTW Mini 18A Opto  (tiny and as tough as nails. More reliable than the SN20s)
Little Bee 20A  (Great performance and improved reliability over the SN20s)
ZTW Pro Spider 20A  (new kid on the block, high performance F330 silabs chip for faster switching. Pick this over the LB20s)
ZTW HV Pro Spider 20A * (new kid on the block, extreme performance F390 silabs chip for super fast switching)
Naze 32 Acro  *  (Is there another?  Yes, plenty of F3 boards)
D4R Receiver    (Great for Frsky users)
XSR* (Smaller with full sbus support andlower latency)
X4R (Small with full sbus support andlower latency)
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 people new to the hobby we recommend the BOLT250.

We are unable to offer VTX for sale in Australia.  For overseas buyers, we suggest the Aomway 200mw.
