Syncmode is a 5″ prop (and able to fit 5.1″) freestyle quadcopter frame as flown by top UK pilot ‘Sync FPV’
The design is a modified version of the Flipmode made to Sync FPV tastes – and ideal for his flying style around ‘bandos’ – AKA abandoned buildings.
Numerous strength updates were made during the consultancy and test process to help weather hardcore Sync flying and crashing:
- Arms stronger and easily removable without affecting the stack.
- New arm design makes primary frame mode lower with dimensions optimised using FEA simulation and blackbox logging
- Stronger top plate, lower plate, camera plate and lock plates – with design optimisation and thicker carbon
- Hard mounted HD Camera mounting with two standoffs locking the HD camera firmly in place
- Lower angle camera plates – 17 degree – designed to SyncFPV tastes – ideal for ‘juicy’ ripping around the Bandos!
- Low angle plates give more control when flying in close proximity to hard objects like concrete walls and dive gaps
- Blue matt finish carbon lower plate camera plate and top plates – with standard carbon as well
- Countersink washers for bracing TPU included
- New tough Supafly lipo straps – with metal buckle
- Improved tougher lipo matt – 3mm rubber for excellent lipo grip and low wear
- All these changes have proved to make a fantastic final version with no breakages even under the most absurd beatings…
These updates come to the popular Flipmode format which already features:
- Low deck 20mm body standoffs, with integrated HD camera angle for a tightly packaged centre of mass
- Ideal motor position geometry for freestyle agility, whilst avoiding props in the HD camera view
- Supafly style
- NOTE – FPV camera mounts standard 28mm camera natively – to run Micro camera or DJI please see accessories or included 3d files
Frame flies beautifully on all firmwares with Supafly tuning. FETTEC stack available in shop which is the same as Sync FPV.
