frame

When choosing a frame, consider this:

  • size (typically stated in diagonal motor distance)
  • motor mount size
  • size/shape of cargo area
  • weight
  • stiffness
  • robustness

The frame size determines how large the props can be, how much space for payload is in between, and how stable the quad will fly. A larger quad (e.g. 135mm motor diagonal) will fly calmer and more stable than a 80mm quad.

Most micro frames can be used with either 6mm, 7mm, or 8.5mm motors. On some frames, you can change the mounts to fit a different size motor.

An H-frame provides a better cargo area than an X-frame.
X-frames tend to be lighter and crash better.
