    Thanks,

    One more question about width.

    when it is deployed, It doesn't look concentric.

    I assume it is 680mm diagonally, so I am wondering what it measures between the two front props. center to center of the hub.

    Thanks
    -Mike

    What no way to lock the arms? Looks like it needs work out the box. Any foldable frame this size should provide a proper locking mechanism, not just a press fit.

    The Tarot style clamps are very robust. They hold the arms where they should be and have the added bonus of releasing when in a crash to help minimize damage.
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    I'll take your word for it, my first instinct is that I want to put a bolt somewhere just to hold them in flight just to avoid any accidental collapse, though I can see how them folding in a crash would help.

    You think even with some big props and abrupt flying they can hold up?

    Yes... flew a similar quad last weekend that had 15in props.
