Micro FPV has really taken off in the last 2 years, with a huge boost in micro component choice. Having specialised in micro FPV frames for years, we couldn’t help but notice the fat micro trend. To achieve more power, 10g motors and 100g batteries are not an uncommon sight, needing beefy frames weighing as much as 60g and up to support this weight.
When fighting gravity, weight is the biggest contributor to performance characteristics, to be more specific, power to weight ratio. However, lightweight micros handle very differently to heavy ones, even if the power to weight ratio is the same, still with me? Some people like their micros feeling like the larger quads they are used to, some of us prefer the feeling of something more nimble and agile.
New frames are often beefed up to support the heavier components, which doesn’t suit the lightweight style of building, so we focused on producing something capable of supporting the 2 differing build styles, The Zoot. This frame has individually replaceable arms, so you can choose the arm to suit your build.
The Zoot comes with 2mm thick 2 and 3” arms for 11XX motors as well as 3mm thick 3” arm with a 13XX/14XX motor mount pattern, for those beefier builds. The Zoot frame kit is only 22g using the 2″ arm pack, 23g with the 3″ and 28g with the heavy duty 3″ arms, this is half the weight of a lot of unibody frames out there, yet this has replaceable arms, with the carbon grain running length-ways down the arm for optimal strength and rigidity. It uses true X geometry and the battery is mounted up top, this makes the Zoot track very well, feel well balanced and tune very easily.
The Zoot is supported with a variety of practical accessories to make your build easy and straight-forward. The scuff guard soft-mounts protect your frame from scuffs as well as reducing vibrations from your motors. The XT30 mount fits to the battery strap and can be used in multiple positions, keeping the power lines off antennas, to keep signal shading and interference to a minimum. The rear antenna mount keeps antennas in the optimal position, away from carbon signal shading, at 90 degrees from one another, for best reception exposure and clear from props. We have also produced an Axii UFL antenna mount as well as a lightweight HD camera mount for SQ12 and Firefly HD DVR cameras, for latency free HD-DVR capture, these are available as optional extras. More accessory options will also be made available as needs be, just check out the related items section below to buy them. You can also check out our Thingiverse collection if you want to print them yourself.
