Shopify store has been taken down, we are selling exclusively on ebay now. It became all to clear that no one on the team wanted to spam Facebook groups for sales. In fact no one on the team wants to be on Facebook (etc) at all. In the past few years have lost a lot of faith in FPV noting ignorance and apathy on the rise, a deadly combination and bad for business.
Parts and beyond are for sale on ebay. We do runs on frames, if interested contact us for wholesale +10% invoicing on any/all frames as we get them cut. We stand firm on our belief that frames are easy to make but hard to master. The marketplace, as a result, is filled with cereal box quads where a bright package marketed to children is the norm. As is the case with cereal, the box is usually filled with garbage.
FPV regulatory Issues are on the rise and we have decided to withdraw from the front lines of FPV (video posting for example) as we anticipate a Federal crackdown on non-commercial FPV flight beginning in 2018. We hope this prediction is wrong and hope to be pleasantly surprised. The FAA has asserted that AMA550 is not valid and 107 or greater is required to fly FPV. Once settled law is on the books we see enforcement efforts picking off the "low hanging fruit".
Sponsorship requests are welcome. It has been our goal to expand the team with quality people. Right now we are still small, not for a lack of people but for a lack of quality. The underlying flight, engineering chops (electronic CAD, mechanical, etc), and a scientific mind with an empirical stance is most important in order to participate in our workflow.
Flying fields are important. We continue to work on opening private flying areas and fields. We do not support the AMA training and safety protocols for FPV and consider the operational guidelines unsafe, poorly constructed, and a product of ignorance. As such we have ceased efforts to open AMA fields in the US and instead pay for access to private land where we continue to fly in a manner that is safe and provides an example of NAS integration unparalleled by the AMA.
Team Values Best engineering, best flight, best safety.
Team Turnoffs Ignorance, fake experience, fanboi-ism, armchair science, reviews lacking technical acumen or fear of pissing off vendor, blind brand faith, failure to acknowledge and take action against bad players.
Open source is VERY important and we aim to open source all of our best (and usually finished) work. Frames are a joke to cut, cheap as shit - no really. We open source our designs as a testament to our understanding that most frames are a rip-off and nothing but hype. Unlike most pilots, we came to fly while most "pilots" are really sitting in chat rooms all day and spamming Facebook.
