BangGOD 5" Lite BangGOD 5" Lite Catalyst Machineworks This "Lite" version of our famous Banggod 5 inch is for pilots who love the frame but wish it was a little less chunky. This new frame lends itself better to light weight components to keep the AUW low. The features of this new version are identical to the original. So how did we remove all that weight? Could it be magic or FPV sorcery of some kind?! No, of course not. We updated plate thicknesses in various locations in combination with trimming excess material where it isn't needed. Additionally, we swapped out steel fasteners for aluminum in locations that don't necessarily need a heavy steel screw. We left steel in locations where they are absolutely required. So how will this new version crash compared to the original? Will it be just as tough? No, of course it won't. We have to work within the constraints of physics, not magic. It will be tougher than anything else out there in this weight range though assuming you build it properly and choose appropriate components.  List of changes and important info:  Arm thickness has not changed Top plate changed from 2mm to 1.5mm Bottom plate changed from 3mm to 2mm  Front arm brace changed from 5mm to 4mm Camera cage side plates changed from 2.5mm to 2mm Front cage plates changed from 28mm separation to 20mm The two screws holding in the top of the TPU bulkhead to the top plate changed from phillips head screws to socket head Arm pad changed from 4 hole to 3 hole. You don't need 4 screws to hold a motor on! Carbon part geometry was trimmed in areas where there was material waste  Some steel screws were changed to 7075 aluminum  Some screw lengths were changed "Toilet tank" lipo mount slots were removed from the top plate Frame includes BOTH 3D antenna mounts needed to install either the dual antenna "air unit" or single antenna "vista" All existing GoPro camera mounts will fit this new frame by using this angle bar that comes with the frame. The included angle bar will allow for 20 - 35 degrees of GoPro camera tilt. If you need higher than 35 degrees you will need to buy this.    Features:  All the stuff you love about the Original Banggod, just less weight (115g) Easy to build Easy to maintain  Industry leading carbon fiber Optional rear arm brace available for purchase Two screw arm removal. Remove arms by loosening one screw and removing the other No arm "slop" Industry leading camera protection (FPV and HD)  Provisions for nearly any FPV antenna on the market  Provisions for crossfire gear  Large lipos fit with ease  Plenty of room between prop tips to lipo sides Moderately Slammed deck (22mm tall)   Accepts the Caddx Air Unit, original DJI Air Unit, Caddx Vista, and Caddx Nebula Pro Accepts mini (20mm wide) or micro (19mm wide) analog cameras  Includes both antenna mounts for the 'Air Unit' or 'Vista' type of antenna    Specs: Approx 115 grams (steel and aluminum hardware) 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 9.5mm wide Top CF sandwich plates: 1.5mm Bottom CF sandwich plate: 2mm Front brace: 4mm Camera cage side plate: 2mm 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  FPV camera cage plate separation: 20mm  Bill of Material (parts list) Frame Assembly Video Optional Upgrades and Accessories Spare Parts
