Loki-X3 Frame – Dodo FC

Arty – adds a bit of class to the post, no?





A new frame – the 130mm Loki-X3, from helipad.com.

I put the gear from my HB-122 into it.

I find this frame better than the RMRC HellBender 122 because it doesn’t have loose motor mounting holes, it protects the camera and it has more prop clearance (sometimes the rear props touched on the HB frame).

It just about fits in the palm of my hand.
