Rotor Riot has released a new 3 “frame: the Ummagawd Acrobrat . And the frame inspires!
Who is the “Umagawd Acrobrat” designer Tommy Tibajia?
Tommy Tibajia – better known by his pilot name Ummagawd (wonderful phonetic wordplay btw!) Is probably one of the most famous pilots on the FPV scene with Rotor Riot . Especially because he faces up to any challenge and if it is possible somehow masters (remember the Duga Dive ?).
Besides, he was always very tech-savvy and made some of the nicest build videos, flew in the DRL and starred in many Rotor Riot videos.
And lately? He has gone under the frame designers and brought to the market one of the most-discussed and most popular freestyle ramen in the remix.
Rotor Riot operates the 3 “hype with the Ummagawd Acrobrat
I myself am a big fan of the 3 “class: The HGLRC XJB-145 is currently my favorite racer and I think the 3 inch FPV quads are the most versatile quads. It is possible to bring them under the magical 250g but you can also strap on a GoPro session – besides they are usually very sturdy and not as loud as bigger ones and parts and lipo batteries are significantly cheaper than the big 5 inch FPV drones.
With the Ummagawd Acrobrat, Rotor Riot now serves this “up-and-coming” class and I’m really looking forward to seeing more movement.
3 “never looked so good
What is so special about the Ummagawd Acrobrat?
Unlike most of the frames on the market, Rotor Riot (or Tommy Tibajia) has given the Ummagawd Acrobat some special features that I like very well:
First, it is the reinforced frame – with its additional bracing on the front and rear, the Acrobrat should be particularly stable. And I think that you can see the frame too. Unfortunately, this is also due to a fairly high weight of 54g.
On the other hand, it is the long, flat construction adopted from the remix , in which the 20x20mm components are installed one behind the other and not stacked in a stack.
This ensures that the LiPo battery almost moves between the propellers and thus the mass is closer to the center , which provides better flight characteristics. Exactly this point I find really exciting and innovative.
Motor Position : True X
Motor Distance : 115mm
Frame Size: 141x141mm
Frame Height: 55.5mm
Weight = 54g
Should I buy the Ummagawd Acrobrat? Price in Germany
I like the Acrobrat sucker. So really good. And I’m thinking of building an FPV racing drone based on the frame.
If not the price. The Acrobrat costs until he is in Germany 60-70 euros, and that’s a pretty bang for a small 3 inch frame.
But I’m up for the build. What do you all mean? Should I get him?
