Build Comments

This frame is built for racing and accordingly is not as strong as the BOLT250.  If you are into hard core proximity or heavy 2206+ setups, you should be aware of the breakage risk! 

When comparing this frame to others, please factor in the impact of the symetrical motor (x) pattern. eg. If you swung arms closer together, in a non symetrical pattern, this frame would be equivalent to a 190 size frame.  On the 180, you are looking at an equivalent of a 160 size.

The motor mount holes incorporate a pattern for both 2204 and 1806 motors. Always use washers for the motor mount bolts, especially with the smaller M2 screws for the 1806 motors.

The photos are of both the 210 and 180 versions.  The only difference between the frames is the bottom plate with all other hardware and CF vertical and top plates interchangeable.

As these vertical CF plates are integral to the design, we have kept the tolerances as tight as we can. Accordingly, some sanding of the tabs for the vertical plates may be required to fit into the slots. Please avoid over sanding for a sloppy fit. Always include the vertical plates and bumpers in your build, they are a key structural design feature.
