I’ve been looking at the Storm Racing Drone. I like the innovation of putting an injection molded canopy-like thing on it to make it look streamlined.
What I don’t get i why the CC3D Evo is placed (or even chosen for this platform?) so far from the center of the motors. At the same time, there is a huge gab between the two main plates, I assume to make room for the ESCs? Also there is a huge buzzer mounted on top of the frame together with the Rx and CC3D – probably because the CC3D does not feature a buzzer output.
It seems that the design would benefit from an integrated Naze32 in the frame, the ESCs on the arms where they would get more cooling thus enabling a reduction in height of the overall frame?

Definitely an interesting design. You are right it is on the tall side for sure. I think the escs being protected could be because it is marketed for any skill level, and it will give them more protection. Plus I bet the box section there gives it a huge amount of strength. It does seem that they could have better used space to make it a little more compact. I’m sure an integrated name would really help that.29 July, 2015 at 22:45 #17810donnybParticipant
I think it is neat. But being tall could raise the center of gravity. Make the controller work a lot. I think if you could flip it over, mount the motors on the other side might be better off. You know low hung. But it is definitely cool looking.30 July, 2015 at 00:48 #1781330 July, 2015 at 02:56 #17814ChadwickParticipant
Looks suspiciously like the storm.30 July, 2015 at 20:22 #17824JesperParticipant
I think it look like a million pieces once i have rammed it into a tree.
