Pyro is a unibody quadcopter frame made from the best carbon fiber around. With minimal cutouts in the main plate, it maintains a sleek yet strong design.
Before you ask why the frame is so darn stiff, I’ll let you in on a little secret: Unidirectional Carbon. Imagine set of sticks laid out right next to each other. Then the next layer is then placed at a 90 degrees to the previous layer and the cycle repeats. The stiffness is only great in two directions. Any twisting will result in all the sticks shifting and trying to break each other. We do something different when we lay up our carbon. The weave is done in such a way that it can accommodate any twist or bends in any direction.
This frame is very good at holding itself together. The FPV camera stays in place by our very scientific and complicated method of having two bolts behind the camera. Just kidding, it’s so simple we wondered why no one has thought of this before. It holds any HS1177 type camera securely in place without modifying the camera in any way.
The battery connector just slides right in the hole at the back of the top plate and gets tightened down with a cam. For those of you that haven’t assembled Ikea furniture before, a cam is a little round device that turns rotary motion into linear motion. So put the connector in, turn the cam, and it’s locked in. It’s very simple to use and, unlike Ikea furniture, this battery holding system can be reassembled over and over.
Want to stick a recording camera on the Pyro? Should’t be hard with the H shaped plate on top. It’ll hold a strap in two directions and can hold anything from a Mobius to a full size GoPro. We’re working on mounting a RED Epic but it is currently affecting battery life.
