Looking really good ..
Wonder what the weight is compared to the stock frames.
And if there are enough holes to do a clean wiring job.
Hope we can keep the weight just as low, maintain or increase stiffness, and make the frames more accessible in the same time.

F-N A!

I will definitely be getting one of these!

I'm so sick of toast!

If your not crashing
your not learning crazy 3D!

This Protos has and is taken my flying to the next level!
Very fast heli!
Best Power to weight ratio heli I have ever flown!!
NOT even the best .90 can out move this little heli!

Oh ya....

I have a friend that could not get his hands on the 15 tooth pinion
so he ran the stock 18 tooth with a 6 cell brand new 7 cycles old Thunder power battery set to 70% on his Jive esc set to max throws on collective and cyclic!.......

Holy SH!T never seen any heli nor any RC aircraft move like his Protos did! the sound that came off the head with the echo at my flying field it sounded like someone was mowing there lawn in the background.

No one else was flying and no mower near by!
Head held together and tracked bang on. sickest heli ever to hit the skys in the 500 size for sure!

Head speed was not tacked but was way over proper limits.
My friend wont be doing it again because the temp of his pack came down at 84c Just wanted to mention I have seen it done and hold together.

New Photos

Here are new photos. The previous ones were of a prototype frame.
I want one....

Quote from Infinity Hobby:
"This is the final version of Carbon Fiber Main Frame Set. We have tried several different design and materials. Light weight is the main feature of MSHeli and we want to keep it and try to make the structure stronger. The first version we used glass fiber to make the prototype, but we soon understood it's not a good idea because the weight of the prototype is heavier than MSHeli about 18g. (picture of prototype) The final version we use pure Carbon Fiber and take out some un-necessary place. Now, the weight of CF frame is lighter than the MSHeli but still strong enough.

We didn't change the position of most electric stuff such as servos, gyro, motor and battery mount. Because we think the design is good enough. We just improve some weak points."

I like the fact that it actually lighter. I am after making my protos as light as possible. Although, I do like plastic. Hope the price is decent.

That actually seems like a rather reasonable price. Now we just need some crash testers to let us know how it fairs in that arena.

I am not at home to check, but does that bag with the stock frame contain the supports and main shaft pieces like pictured in the carbon frame photo? Also, shave off a gram or so for the plastic bags of the carbon frame that are on the scale.

Nop, no main block and bearings.
Guess I know how much I shaved of when its all finished, Ill compare RTF wights then.

A few more snaps before I go to bed.
Electronics first thing in the morning.

Lower bearing block

Another closeup

Almost done

Ready for electronics

Cool
Thanks for the photos.
I'm very curious what it finally weighs and how it balances with all components installed.

Lookin' REAL good!

Is there a place for mounting the gyro? Or does it have to mount directly onto the boom clamp assembly?

No special spot for gyro. Im putting it directly on clamp.
Was sanding the clamp a bit today since mine wasn't flat. Gyro tape would hold for a few days at best.
Its nice and flat now.

Im doing some nice wiring job...pics coming in 2morrow.

Frame feels more spacious and light. A lot of free space around motor and ESC compartment. It will keep it cooler I suppose.

The clamp can't be flat, it would not deform from the production mold.
Cooling will be much better i think.
When i buy a FG canopy I'll also cut a nice vent hole in the lower halve to get more air in the motor and ESC.
