A superbly engineered, precision cut pure 3K Twill Weave Carbon Fiber frame. Designed by Pat Gualtieri to be lightweight and tough enough to take a beating, the Minion takes your mini-FPV experience to the next level. New chunky arms to withstand the added stress of larger motors and higher speed impacts. The yoke arm design provides superior strength and rigitdy compared to individually mounted arms. Note that unlike some other designs, the Minion does not mount ESCs inside or under the frame. They are heat generating components and perform much better when mounted on the arms where they can take advantage of airflow. This quad is designed for performance.
