Mr Steele Apex 5" Quadcopter RTF Bundle (6s)
As low as $849.99
The latest RTF features the amazing ImpulseRC Mr Steele Apex Frame Kit (Light Weight). ImpulseRC has worked with legendary FPV pilot Mr Steele throughout the development lifecycle to ensure the Apex is up to the high standards of the man himself.
The arms of an FPV frame are the key structural component that translates the thrust from the motors to the majority of the mass in the aircraft, which is secured to the body of the frame. The design of the arms and how they are attached to the body is one of the most vital aspects that influences the performance of an FPV frame.
There are multiple problems that can occur with existing arm designs which can lead to poor performance, difficulty tuning and added cost. The Apex addresses all of these problems with a simple and unique new design that eliminates all arm slop and drastically increases durability.
Symmetrical arms make it possible to pocket one side of the part without introducing the need for distinct left and right arms, making you require more spare parts. We use a pocket instead of a hole under the motor to increase durability and we embed a press nut to simplify attachment and avoid clearance issues under your stack.
Flight electronics are mounted to the upper main plate using countersink bolts. This completely decouples the arm attachment from the electronics mounting. Arms can be replaced using two bolts without any disturbance to your stack.
Our custom machined shoulder bolts act as a solid steel pin through the arm which eliminates slop and tolerance issues. The precision shaft passing through the arm removes all side-loading of the carbon laminations on to the chisel-like threads of a regular bolt. Factory added threadlocker and custom aluminum cone washers spread the load of the clamping force and ensure the bolts will not vibrate loose.
At the apex of a masonry arch, a keystone locks all the stones into position and allows the arch to bear weight and be self-supporting. A keystone is a hallmark of strength and good design, the Apex FPV frame is no different and the carbon key sits at the heart of the frame to distribute forces applied to the arms.
Manufactured by the legendary HQProp and included free with every frame are custom skids, bumper and Crossfire antenna mount, injection-molded in abrasion-resistant glass-filled nylon. At launch, we have available Classic Black, ImpulseRC Red, and Military Coyote Brown, with more colors to follow in the future.
Also in each frame kit are two die-cut lipo pads for you to choose from, both an ultra-durable natural rubber pad as well as a lightweight velcro option for those wanting to shave every last gram.
Mr. Steele is an FPV hobby enthusiast, who has been flying FPV drones since April 2014. As a result of his massive flying skills, knowledge in FPV and "mustache" personality, he has been named one of the best in the game! Due to a high reach on social media and popularity, Mr Steele has become one of the world's first full-time professional FPV freestyle pilots. Nonetheless, Mr Steele has worked with ESPN, CNN, BMW, GoPro, RedBull, and other well-known companies!
