    I ordered a 6" version a day too late so it's now on back order. I knew I should have made the purchase a day earlier. Doh!

    I was actually in the middle of building a 2nd QAV250 but decided to use the electronics for this thing and the 250 frame will just be a backup for my other 250.

    Looking forward to seeing the PDB once it's available. Are there any plans for it to have integrated 5V/12V regulators?

    QQ: is it ok to use aluminum standoffs with steel screws? what about using nylon 35mm standoffs like the ones on the old blackout quads? I've been using nylon standoffs on my QAV250 for a while and they're surprisingly robust in a crash when used with steel or aluminum screws ... but be careful not to over tighten them!
    I used both aluminum and polyamide spacers on several builds before and definitely prefer the aluminum ones. The thread of the polyamide spacers is just to weak for metal screws (I always use titanium screws). The aluminum spacers are way more robust and just add about one gram of extra weight on a full set.

    Questpact, I'm following your build on instagram- looks brilliant so far! I'm gonna do the same thing, but with the RX2204 motors. With the screws for the PowerCube, are you using nylon or metal? Will the screws short the board?

    Tim, thank you so much for this frame. The top-notch quality of Lumenier in a frame inspired by the pros- it doesn't get better. Looking forward to getting mine soon.

    I just yesterday ordered an Alien 5 inch, a SP f3 controller, x4rsb, Lumenier RX2206's, etc. I like the look of this frame...I mentally veto'd the Charpu...because of crash-ability cost issue's.
    I am tempted to get this and do a side by side comparison from the view of the average pilot..as I am a average pilot and that is the biggest market.

    Looks really good. I'm very tempted to jump on the power cube bandwagon. I love the simplicity, but it would be so much cooler if they could fit some kind of very basic OSD into the stack. Just battery voltage would be enough for most people I assume. I know you can add the Core to it, but it would be awesome to have something that fits into that stack.

    We should have frames back in stock next week. We will have to switch hardware to silver Aluminum screws instead of black for the next batch.
