After designing some of the most innovative racing frames the FPV market has even seen we are now set on a course for freestyle nirvana. The Smooth Operator is the culmination of years of experience in the world of FPV frame design. Why is this bird better than anything else on the market currently? Its simple. Many aspects of this design were inspired by YOU. The pilots. We took a completely different path with the entire design process and asked the people who fly freestyle what they want to see in a frame. We produced detailed design review videos and posted them on Youtube. These videos covered Smooth Operator frame revisions 4, rev 5, and rev 6. Every single pilot comment was reviewed and seriously considered for implementation into the final design, along with our own internal team pilot input. After weeks of work flight testing, crashing, and fine tuning the design we finally have a finished product. A detailed design review video is coming where the designer will cover all the major aspects of what makes this freestyle rig so special and so different than anything else on the market.

Please note that the gopro session mount is not included with the frame and is purchase separately.  We also sell a range of angle bars to adjust the angle of the session mount.

    Just fantastic

    Posted by Cheredanine on 2nd Dec 2018

    I build and fly a lot of freestyle quads, this is by far the best I have. It flies superbly. I would add a couple of counter points -
    It takes a long time to put together. You really need the 3d printed arm guards, I agree with the other poster, spares from the US are a pain, need more replacement parts in the UK, and it is a tight build because of the slam deck. But all of that doesn’t make a difference to the fact it is just superb
