    Sorry bud we posted as soon as we had them in stock. We are able to make a little less margin on the arms when in a kit because we make the majority of the kit in-house. These arms are full-scale aircraft grade CF weave all the way through, our cost is pretty high. While they are pricy we more than make up for it in how durable they are and in the fact that we engineering crash fuses in the plastic mounts which go before the CF breaks a good majority of the time.

    ya i broke one of the smaller CF booms, but admittedly it survived quite a bit before it broke & as engineered, the crash before the CF boom broke it twisted & sheared off the plastic studs in the mount.
    plastic mounts are much cheaper than booms plus it lets the motors turn a little bit in a mishap. better to move than be immobile! helps bearings & wiring.
    sort of like how everyone zip-ties & glues stuff to their flyers, but they'd be much better off with fluffy foam rubber & then attaching it with rubber bands. you wreck it, it just sorta flails apart like an indy car. fix some possibly chewed up wiring & no electronics get damaged

    Got my FPV gear installed, trying something new here. I am building this rig to be a short range gimbaled copter to shoot various projects so I installed a ImmersionRC 5.8 600mw vtx and I am using the Flysight diversity monitor I got from Rangevideo. I haven't had good luck with 5.8 here in Miami in the past but I was using stock antennas on my vtx and vrx before. I walked down the block with the monitor and video was pretty clear so we will see what happens. In the past with stock antennas on 5.8 I couldn't go more then 50 feet away.

    I wanted to get her airborne tonight but my DL on my Taranis makes the baby monitor go crazy so I will have to wait till tomorrow to set up the Naza.

    Looks super sexy though

    Without the gimbal it should easily hover for 18 minutes, the 500 does.....in fact I would expect MAYBE 20 if I remove safety limits on the FC


    Thanks, the extension will rock!


    Looking for a naza v1 (Shhhhhhh) or a v2......

    with the better aerodynamics of the round arms you might get better flight time than the 500... let me know...

    Hi Scottu,

    Just curious, I am thinking about getting the longer arm version. So you will be running 11x5 graupner 740kv tigers and a 6000mah 4s? Which 4s? Did you have to custom order spacers with your mk 1 - L for fitting the 6000mah?

    Maybe these 700kv sunnsysky motors http://www.foxtechfpv.com/sunnysky-2...tor-p-382.html and a 11x5 or 12x6 would be good?
