This frame was designed for AP and FPV with the idea of reducing as many vibrations to the camera as possible. The carbon tubes and rubber dampers are common parts for XAircraft frames that can be purchased at a low cost. The V shape allows cameras to be mounted above the loading pipes without the need for extended landing gear hanging beneath the frame. It opens up the space between the front arms to allow a prop-free view from the camera.
