Hmmm PDB ready for directly soldering a Naze, MinimOSD, FrSky Receiver, may be a Pololu and some caps, don't forget the current sensor?
I really like the idea of such an integrated PDB :o

Please share some pictures with final all the relevant components.

Regards derEnCH

LektroSmog,
I will weigh it tomorrow. I thought you was right until I've seen the weight of QAV250.

QAV250 weight 170gr (with PDB, LED boards, landing gear and hardware), i have weights of some parts and i think it is not near 170gr!

anyway, yes, it is heavier than plastic version of Spidex:

derEnCh,
bottom plate is power distribution board only, and all components: naze, minimOSD (with kvteam firmware) D4R-II receiver are routed through PCB so there are very few cables.

Wow great no wire mess anymore.
Anything against carbon fibre arms except the price ...

even the price is not a problem with this small size, probably this aluminium machining work is more expensive than two dimensions carbon fiber cut

I would like the ESC had its place and not just placed on CF arm set with a tie wrap

What about Spidex V3? Does it become available again?

Really nice, I like it! :D

Curious about the frame dry weight too, altho being that small it should be quite light eitherway and at the end of the day you managed to get significant weight saving by eliminating most of the wiring so it basically partially compensates the extra weight compared to POM-C frame kit.

Good stuff! :D
