After some extensive testing with different frame size and design, I finally came out with this Kosho frame. It's a 64mm size nano quad that takes advantage of the new 16x16 FC, 4 in1 ESC and crazy small BR0703 brushless motors. The quad if properly built is extremly stable in the air with little to no drifting even if you fly it on Angle or horizon auto levelling mode. Thanks to Tomoquads unique softmount design called " Floating FC design" (see pic) it filters all high frequency vibrations coming from the motors and props making it ultra stable in the air much like the Tiny Whoop's excellent flight characteristic. Dont be fooled by so called softmount where the screws/standoffs still pass from the frames to the FC as they are not effective in filtering vibrations. Vibration is the number one problem on nano quads where the motors are mounted too close to the FC making the FC's gyro to work hard in filtering unwanted vibration, these vibrations make your quad to drift and decrease flight time.
What makes it better than others?
- Disc Shape frame design makes the frame more rigid yet light
- 1.5mm full carbon fiber body including the propeller guards
- Floating FC design (softmount). FC is totally isolated from the frame eliminates drifting and twitching
- Can be flown with or without propeller guards
- No ugly extended arms that connect the prop guards. Looks more like a proper nano quad without guards
- Comes with battery holder.
- Camera mount is made of strong Nylon Filament
- Able to use a bigger props like the more efficient Hubsan Tri-props
- Flight times of up to 5min on 200mah 1s Tiny Whoop lipo
- Weight: 21g.without prop guard , 26g with prop guard 32g AUW with 200mah 1S lipo.

NOTICE: Some BR0703 motors have longer screws that can hit and touch the staro wires damaging the motors. File the end before mounting.
