When designing Garuda, we paid special attention to weight balance. Even with an HD camera, Garuda never tilts when placed on the ground. With a 1300mAh battery strapped to the bottom and a GoPro on top, Garuda is balanced along the horizontal axis for clean flips and rolls.
At tilt, Garuda maintains a straight line through to GoPro to the battery, giving you a balanced feel while flying at high speeds.
As a true-X, Garuda gives the best possible stick feel with the motors and forces right where the flight controller expects them to be.
Not only is Garuda balanced, but it's lighter than other drones with canopies. Including the integrated GoPro mount, Garuda's frame + canopy + hardware weighs in at 92g for the 3mm version and 110g for the 4mm version.
Designed with maintenance in mind.
When something goes wrong in the field, Garuda is ready for repair.
Full access to the flight controller, RX, and VTX means you can perform repairs without even removing a screw.
Nails the little things.
With zip tie slots and a mounting hole for your XT-60, nut holding nubs for canopy screws, extra-snug hardware-free FPV camera mounting, and included vibration-damping o-rings to mount your flight controller, Garuda misses no details.
We've agonized over every aspect of the frame, especially the little things, with dozens of revisions and changes so minor they're best measured in micrometers.
Compatible with the most common hardware.
Garuda is compatible with the parts you'll see on most builds. However, Garuda requires the following:
- Flight Controller: Standard, 30.5mm sized flight controller
- Motors: 22XX motors or any motor with standard 16x19 M3 mounting holes
- Camera: Foxeer HS1177, RunCam Swift, RunCam Owl Plus, or other camera whose case is 25x25mm with screw nubs
- VTX: Any VTX with a SMA pigtail.
Garuda's included hardware lets you soft-mount mount your PDB and flight controller with plenty of clearance for components. The included o-rings help prevent yaw-twitching for those sensitive gyros and motors with N52 magnets.
