    Just a little heads up,

    I've promised that I will make an auxiliary spare parts source so, I did


    All parts are now available in pure 3k carbon fiber, refer to RCG official thread for the link.


    Please understand that sharing a direct link in here wouldn't be right and would be against the LAB rulez, I'm not an FPVlab sponsor yet, thx for understanding.

    Best,
    D.

    Will do M,


    It's taken a bit, mostly duo to my day job and the usual stuff but I've decided, enough of perfecting things.

    Tbh I no longer can bare to look at the design and not instantly go out and fly it. Haha



    I just hope you guyz won't be disappointed,

    with that said, I'm not following trends and have stayed true to the solution, especially the parts that have been proven beyond desired and gave it more answers than D265 had sorta speak.

    For instance, bigger vertical battery fitting capacity, more compact and smarter form which I'd like to think kicks the box design in the butt for reasons I wish avoid mentioning till the release.

    Obviously, lighter weight and smaller footprint, less parts and hardware, pdb integration and..... it has something to do with canopy but it's not


    Frankly,

    I was thinking of not releasing this one for obvious reasons, why not having in my biased opinion best frame or at least the most fun one for my self to enjoy it, one of it's kind and avoid imitations that degrade all the hardwork and countless hours invested in developing it.


    Then again,

    it's not about what I would want, all of you guyz that have been very supportive since day one, in a way, I owe you the improvement.


    Goes without saying, and I have no problems saying this regardless of what it comes to in the end before the release, retailers, distributors or not.


    D265 owners will have noticeable discount on the frame, that is, all that were supporters from the beginning.

    The production cost is high duo to the solution, full cfk and PDB but, I'll make it available anyway.


    It's going to be released because of folks mentioned above, I really don't care will it be 1 unit or 1000 units in the end.


    Besides, after the release and things like where to buy, I plan to fly this thing, not so much talk about it except maybe setups and stuff Haha



    Guess that's one heck of an 'updated', hope it's enough till the release

    Cheers mate!

    I'd like to think it's going to be a very fun and exciting frame to fly above all.

    It's kinda starting to get all same all same again in the MR design field and tbh as much as I love D265, I'm dying to experience something new as D PRO after the release. (no more dev just good ol flying ).



    While at it, time to give the old D a new CFK armor

    Gonna use it to film our races with it, will be upgraded with Cine after the initial build.

    Build observations...

    I actually managed to finish up the power train today


    so, it's about time to put things on scale and see where are we at with weight...


    The old build...






    The new build...




    It's just nuts, overall 20,53 grams of total weight removed, after the 5v reg, fc and xt60 cnc fixture onboard, 10.54 grams of weight difference between the undercarriage builds in favor of the new build.

    When you take into consider that the next plate, CFK Battery Deck plate is shy of 7 grams lighter than older G10 plate things are beginning to be just ridiculous.

    I cannot wait to build this thing and compare the AUW between the old build and the new one!! Old build was at 540grams with 1.4Ah MS battery.




    After satisfactory weight saving in the undercarriage it was time to fire it up for the first time and check does it work, well...


    ...It does!




    Stay tunned for more....
