Buy Falcon $79

It started with an X.

We made sketches, created 3D models, and lost sleep over every cut in the carbon fiber.

Then we built prototypes and crashed them into concrete and metal poles, redesigning anything that broke.

The result is Falcon, a line of no-compromise, insanely durable, high performance race quads.

No compromise design.

The idea started simple. We wanted to design an X-quad that’s lighter, shorter, easier to build, and more durable than anything on the market.

But we wanted a built-in HD camera mount that worked with Runcam, GoPro Session, and even full-sized GoPros. We wanted a x-quad specific PDB that works with Littlebees OR KISS, support for different cameras and VTXs, multiple options for antenna mounting, places to put zip ties and velcro straps, and an easily serviceable build.

How did we do it? Simple, include hardware for 3 different build styles.

Low-profile 17mm camera build

Falcon 185, 160

Designed around the HS1177M 17mm camera, this build has a fixed camera angle that matches the HD camera angle.

This build stays short so you don't clothesline yourself on airgates while still letting you mount up your HD camera of choice if necessary.

Instead of the angled CF plate that comes with Falcon, you can use foam and a velcro strap, 3D printed GoPro mounts, or even a 3D printed top plate + GoPro mount.

The angle of the HD/FPV camera can be set from 0° to 48° using the included spacers.

  • 12mm screws

Tall-tower 25mm camera build

Falcon 185, 160

Designed around the HS1177 25mm camera, this build has a variable camera angle and an optional fixed angle HD camera mount.

This build makes it easy to adjust for FPV camera angle for different courses and can optionally mount a HD camera as well.

The camera angle can be set from 0° to 48° using the included spacers.

  • HD camera plate
  • 12mm screws

Micro CMOS camera build

Falcon 185, 160, 130

Designed around the Micro 600TVL CMOS camera, this build has a fixed camera angle and an no option for mounting a HD camera.

This build can be done with top plate and a full-sized VTX, or with the HD camera plate and a small VTX module (such as the FX758-2).

Assembly diagram

With full top plate

  • 18mm screws
  • Main plate
  • 4mm spacers
  • Flight controller
  • 15mm standoffs
  • Top plate
  • 6mm screws

With minimal top plate

  • 18mm screws
  • Main plate
  • 4mm spacers
  • Flight controller
  • 15mm standoffs
  • HD camera plate
  • 6mm screws

Designed with maintenance in mind.

When something goes wrong in the field, Falcon doesn't require a teardown to fix it. Removing 4 screws gives access to your flight controller, VTX, and camera.

We chose the hardware for Falcon very carefully. Where other frames use a locknut as a spacer, Falcon uses a 4mm threadless aluminum spacer that makes it easy to quickly take the build apart and access the bottom of the PDB.

Changing out a broken battery strap is as simple as backing off the 18mm screws from the main stack (without removing them), then sliding the strap through Falcon's battery strap slots.

Cut from the best carbon fiber in the industry.

We didn't skimp here. Falcon is cut by Armattan's team of skilled CNC operators from the same high quality Armattan carbon fiber you've come to expect. Every cut is clean and smooth. Tolerances are spot on.

And, of course, the durability is legendary.

A PDB with a purpose.

Falcon 185 and 160

Falcon needed a PDB that was designed specifically for X quads. We needed a no compromise, light weight, high amperage PDB with 5V pads in the right location for popular FCs and ESC pads that don't require you to criss-cross wires or flip your ESC upside down.

Nothing like that existed, so we worked with Flynoceros to design the reversible Flyno Cloverleaf Pro PDB -- one side is perfect for KISS and Rotorgeeks ESCs, and the other perfect for everything else. With 4oz copper, support for dual Pololu voltage regulators, zip tie slots for your XT60 pigtail, and pads in all the right places, there's nothing else like it, and it ships with Falcon 160 and 185.

The Flyno PDB is 1mm thick and weighs only 5g, making it the thinnest PDB on the market.
