BangGOD 5 Inch (BACKORDERS ACCEPTED) BangGOD 5 Inch (BACKORDERS ACCEPTED) Catalyst Machineworks UPDATE 11-8-19: We sold out of the 5" version of this frame. More are being machined right now, with an ETA of around 2 weeks to ship. We ship orders as we receive them. The sooner you get your order in the sooner your frame ships. We apologize for running out of stock. Response from the market has been overwhelming!  The BangGOD is a tribute to all those designers who invest their time, money, and brain power into coming up with new and innovative machines for the FPV industry. Sadly this intellectual property is cloned by folks looking to make a quick buck. Our own Catalyst designs have been stolen multiple times and the perpetrators don't even have the decency to change the name of the cloned frame! If you are a consumer of FPV gear please keep in mind the reason you have such an amazing assortment of gadgets to choose from is simple. Customer support! When you spend your dollars with the originators of great gear you are literally fueling further development. If you support a clone to save a few bucks you might as well be shooting yourself in the foot. Those businesses who innovate will eventually die off and you will be left with a bunch of crap to fly. Please give the innovators in our industry your support and help grow FPV. Now it is time for the good stuff. Lets discuss the tech behind the BangGOD. First some background into why we created this miracle of FPV freestyle and long range. After releasing the Smooth Operator back in the summer of 2018 our engineering department immediately started gathering pilot feedback. That informational repository has grown over the past year and we have gathered enough valuable pilot inspired info to bring our solutions to the market. The BangGOD is a continuation of the fundamental design aspects of the Smooth Operator with a number of improvements and new features built in. So what changed from the Smooth Operator?  Lower price. $79.99 for the BangGOD 5" compared to $99.99 for the Smooth Operator 5".  Much more room for components. 22mm of space, top-to-bottom compared to 13mm in the Smooth Operator. Two full sized stacks can be mounted in the BangGOD.  Field maintenance has been made easier. The top plate can be removed easily providing access to all components on the interior of the frame. The BangGOD accepts the DJI FPV system with ease. The Smooth Operator does not.  Any camera existing on the market can fit this frame. Full sized, mini, or micro. The Smooth Operator only accepts micro cameras.  More available space to fit longer lipos compared to the Smooth Operator. Top deck length is 95mm.  More room between the lipo and the rear props compared to the Smooth Operator.  The BangGOD employs a slick HD camera angle adjustment system. There are slots which allow the camera to be adjusted to any angle from 20 to 50 degrees. Two angle bars make this happen. One allows for 20 - 35 degrees adjustment. The other for 35 - 50 degrees adjustment. HD camera mount parts are sold separately.  The BangGOD can be setup with the rear arms in a standard low position (same level as the front arms) or staggered with the rear arms offset 17mm higher than the front arms.  Carbon components have been beefed up compared to the Smooth Operator providing a more crash tough structure.    Specs and Features:  Approx 142 grams (standard steel hardware) Approx 132 grams (optional aluminum hardware - sold separate) Extremely resistant to crash damage No props in view with GoPro superview on @ 20-50 degree HD camera tilt Carbon fiber: Twill Weave 3K Matte Standoff color: Matte black HD camera mount material: TPU (multiple colors available - sold separate) Standard CF Arm Thickness: 5mm thick x 10mm wide Top CF sandwich plates: 2mm Bottom CF sandwich plate: 3mm Front brace: 5mm Optional rear brace (sold separate): 4mm Frame type: H quad Frame size: 234mm FPV camera angle range: 0 - 75 degrees Motors supported: 22xx, 23xx, 24xx or similar  Lipos supported: 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s  Lipo mounting position: Top  Prop size: 5.1 inch (max) Ideal ESC: 4-in-1 design with 30.5mm x 30.5mm M3 mounting holes Ideal FC: 30.5mm x 30.5mm M3 mounting holes  Micro FC: Can be mounted on this frame Motor pad mounting holes: M3 screws on 16mm or 19mm mounting circles  Supports Full Sized FPV Cameras: No adapter needed Supports "Mini" FPV Cameras: Adapter needed (sold separate) Supports "Micro" FPV Cameras: Adapter needed (sold separate) HD camera mount options: Session or Standard Gopro  HD camera mount angle range: 20 - 50 degrees No props in view with superview on @ 30 degree HD camera tilt.  Moderately Slammed deck (22mm tall)   Two screw arm removal.
