SuperLight 3 inch (V2) SuperLight 3 inch (V2) Catalyst Machineworks This is an updated and improved version of our original Superlight 3 inch. What changed? Click this link to find out! What is the ideal build spec for maximum performance? Click this link to find out! The SuperLight was forged out of beautiful carbon fiber and aluminum by the FPV gods and then transported to this planet for the soul purpose of beating the crap out of everyone else on the race track. On the day of it's arrival on earth all the Gram Chasers and Weight Nazi's gathered around to behold it's greatness. Today will forever go down in the FPV history books as the day Catalyst Machineworks entered the super light weight frame world. Do you find yourself wondering if clear shrink tubing is lighter than black shrink tubing? Do you put your quads on a diet of no ESC plugs, 400mah lipos, and super short wiring runs all the while telling your friend his 200 gram AUW quad 3" is a fat ass? Welp, this frame is for you! The SuperLight is an XL frame. Meaning it is a stretched 'X' frame. The left / right side props have been pulled in towards craft centerline as close as possible, while the front / back props have been stretched away from each other. This is a wonderful geometric scenario for racing applications. The extended length allows for more stable and controllable pitch, which translates into more control of speed and altitude. The tightly packed frame width translates into lightning fast roll maneuvers. When you combine this positioning of the motors and the SUPER LOW frame mass its a recipe for world domination.  This machine is perfect for a professional FPV pilot looking to put down the fastest ever MultiGP UTT time or the new guy just getting into FPV racing who has no idea what in the world the previous two paragraphs mean.
