Looks great David! What are the dimensons of the battery bay? Any plans for 6" arms?

Are these for sale already? Will it fit a runcam hd or mobius? Seems like its more custom fit for a session

We have used gopros, xiomi, session, and mobius on, You can use also install the mobius on top of the battery or move the battery back and place it at the front of the fuselage.

And yes, we are shipping them out already.

Matt,
I think this will cover any questions in regards of general dimensions.

The plate is sandwiched between the camera housing and the lens security nut

Took a couple nights, but I was able to finish my build without any issue. Everything powered up fine. Using kiss 30amp and emax 2300kv red bottoms. FLew it for the first time today on latest betaflight using luxfloat and default pids. It was damn close to tuned right there. Tracked really well and the power combo was crazy powerful. However, wasn't all roses. Had a small crash and surprisingly broke the center plate where the arm screws in. Right past the inner screw hole where the arm attaches. Seems weak as it wasn't even a bad crash at all. Here's a couple pictures of the damage.

Really bummed out. Any eta for replacement parts?

A bottom sandwich plate for the arms might be a nice option for those "risky" pilots out there... I'll probably fab one up for my x24 once it finally makes it to Chile.

I don't remember how I came across this frame but I've been eyeing it like crazy and I think this might have to be my next build. You guys out of Florida?

Nice and close to home. Once I am able to convince myself that I need yet another quad I will be placing an order. It's just a matter of time :)

Built my x24 over the last week. It's a great frame and I love the design details! The ability to carry two batteries at once adds a great deal of flexibility.... if only one could purchase 6" arms for it!

In this build I actually recorded pretty much the whole process for my vlog. Here's the first two installments of the process. They're a bit long, but hopefully you'll find them interesting/entertaining.

I just started building one of these too! KISS FC and ESC's, Sktizo motors, etc. Should be a fun beater!

The latest from my pair of x24s. Really happy with this frame! I'm even moving the electronics from my Tankito to make a new longer distance x28. That way I'll have two 6" quads for the mountains.
