AvocadoXL 220 Racing Drone Kit
The AvocadoXL is an experiment in frame design where the battery sits in an internal compartment at a 45-degree angle. This battery placement enables the center of gravity and moment of inertia to be sequestered right in the middle of the prop line. Many have noticed flight characteristic benefits from this balancing act. We've seen the quad respond quicker and smoother to controller input which is attributed to not have as much mass above or below the quadcopter to throw around ( making it more localized to the moment of inertia )
As this frame tries to shrink the overall size while holding a battery in the middle, there isn't much room for extra components. Currently, it only supports a single stack flight controller, small receiver and mid-sized video transmitters like the TBS Unify Pro. You can attempt to use multiple stacked flight controller system, but it may protrude too far from the top of the frame into the prop line.As the Flight controller sits
As the Flight controller sits at a 45° angle on top and away from the ESCs, this frame is not conducive to PDB or all in one flight controller system. ESCs go under the arms and are connected to the supplied PDB. For details on how to assemble the frame visit the assembly guide.
