FRANK CITRO FRAME is a result of several years experience and accurate research on a 5 inch frame in response to most of the FPV freestyle pilots needs. Fully designed and tested by Frank Citro, this frame reflects and expresses to the best his flying style. Made by high quality materials like Carbon 3K Toray 700, hardware in steel of grade 12.9. The materials united with its own design make the frame very resistant to impacts, while maintaining a relatively light weight for its category.
Solid wide arms
The solid wide arms come with thickness 4 mm and they are chamfered, which give a perfect touch and feel and avoid potential scratches with any cable. They have been designed to have a perfect interlocking system, that makes assembly and replacement much easier by removing only one screw.
Made by flexible and high resistant TPU material, the motors protection are specially think up with an internal shock absorbing system, which provide strength and lightness.
An intelligent fixing method with the arm makes their assembly and disassembly easy, without the need to remove any screws or use clamps and at the same time difficult to slip off in case of crash.
As a freestyle pilot who pushes a lot in abandoned buildings and on concrete, Frank Citro was the first in the FPV world to develop this idea to protect the motors with high results.
Camera side plate
The camera side plate is composed by two identical sides with the white varnished CITRO logo, which is mirrored between left and right side and gives to the frame a really cool style.
The standard-sized camera side plate allows fixing the camera with 3 screws, which avoids any movement of the camera inclination in the event of an impact. The grade is adjustable from 0 to 50 degrees on the upper buttonhole and from 30 to 40 degrees in the lower one. It is compatible with all standard and mini / micro FPV cameras equipped with adapter.
The generous rear space of the frame allows to easy slot vtx even of large dimensions such as the caddx vista or the tbs unify pro32.
The VTX antenna support is made on a flexible and high resistant black TPU material. It fits perfectly into the milled standoff. Its design provide it high durability and the right hardness/flexibility so the antenna will not move or scratch even in case of impact. Thanks to this feature the VTX antenna will be always right positioned. It is compatible for mounting the classic SMA and TBS antennas (with two screws) . It is also light in portability and easy to place on the frame.
The Crossfire / R9M antenna support, on flexible and high resistant black TPU material, is made of two specular pieces which fit perfectly into the milled standoff. Its design provide it high durability and the right hardness so the antenna will not move even in case of impact. Thanks to this feature the Crossfire / R9M antenna will be always in the right position and you can save it from any scratches from the propellers in the event of crash. It is also light in portability and easy to place on the frame.
3M antislip Battery pad
With 3M adhesive pad, non-slip and washable, it perfectly welds the battery to the frame and avoids slipping in the event of strong impacts. The high quality of the pad makes it much longer lasting than the standard.
FRANK CITRO FRAME design and the study of each part have been realised to avoid possible vibration resonances coming from the frame. Thanks to this feature and a clean setup you can finally push your PIDs and filters to the limits.
The attention in each minimal detail and the choice of high quality materials make it a qualitatively superior product. By virtue of its solid structure, it is suitable both for those who face the FPV world and for the more experienced pilot who wants to push more with less worries.
