The "TWIG TANK is a more durable thicker version of our original Speed Racer TWIG kit. The premium carbon frame is 112mm mm motor post to motor post and a true X design that is 4mm mm thick. The frame by itself weight only 18.9 grams. Most completed builds are between 60-90 grams depending on the components you choose. This frame is a very high quality carbon and is chamfered 1 mm on both sides. Our signature racer style designed frame not only looks amazing, but the design also allows it to be much more durable than most others in its class. The TWIG tank carbon frame has mounting holes to accommodate toothpick style AIO flight controllers with the USB mounted on the side and older bottom mount USB whoop style AIO flight controllers as well. Our new layout provides you with both standard battery mounting and now toilet bowl direction as well. AIO has quickly became the standard in our industry for micros due to its all in one design, shorter stack, and being lighter than most stack setups. The toothpick style AIO is recommended to be able to use both the battery strap slot options. Motor mounts are universal to accommodate both standard 4 hole 9X9 mm slotted to 12x12 mm mounting to allow for larger sized motors with the frame being so thick and durable .
We have (2) kits we offer. A Standard & Deluxe Kit. The Standard Kit includes the frame, TPU Canopy, mounting hardware, Racer X FPV custom battery strap, battery mounting pad, and a set of HQ T3X2.5X3 props. The Deluxe Kit includes all the items in the Standard Kit but you also get TPU self adjusting quick release battery mounts in 2S, 3S, & 4S sizes as well as arm guards and motor wire clips. Our new TPU battery mounts have a unique design that allows them to be rotated to both standard position and toilet bowl style with the same mount. Our older style you had to specify when ordering if you wanted standard or toilet bowl style. Now you get both options from all our mounts available.
The newly designed included canopy has 5-55 degree camera angle adjustment . The canopy fits 14x14mm nano cameras such as the Caddx Baby Ratel, Runcam Nano 2, Runcam Racer Nano, & Caddx EOS2 cameras. We also now have (2) mounting holes standard on all our canopies so you can adjust the camera mounting and where the lens of the camera is located to protect it mush better. Any smaller vtx can be used. We like using the new NamelessRC Nano since it is very small and provides amazing video at up to 400mw output and has smart audio control. If you choose to go HD, you can stack the Caddx Baby Turtle HD or the new Runcam Whoop Mounting Split 3 Nano cameras above the aio board.
The following mounting hardware is also included in the kit: (4) M2x16mm screws (8) M2 nylon nuts. To allow easy access to the USB for programming and compact easy installation, we recommend a toothpick aio. All sizes of M2 screws and nylon spacers are readily available for purchase at most hobby shops if your looking to stack HD camera boards, etc. Please also be aware that this is a 4mm thick frame and depending on the motors you choose and what mounting screws come with the motors, you may need longer screws being this frame is thicker than a normal 3" micro frame. Using a bottom mounted USB AIO with motor plugs is not recommended. It requires you to install M2 nylon spacers (not included) to lift the board high enough to be able to plug in the motors and therefore makes it very hard to access the USB plug. If you decide to use a bottom mount USB AIO, direct soldering the motors is highly recommended to be able to soft mount the AIO directly on the frame and access the USB very easily. Our improved frame design also allows multiple ways to mount your batteries. The frame has velcro strap slots for your battery mounting both standard direction and toilet bowl style so now you can choose which way you want your batteries mounted. The kits all come with a custom Racer X FPV battery strap that is 12 mm x 170 mm. Each kit also comes with a 30 mm X 15 mm X 1 mm silicon rubber sticky back battery pad to keep your batteries from sliding. This kit is truly the most universal kit on the market with so many ways to build it. We look forward to seeing all your custom builds and featuring them on our website.
