FlightClub PROton | Ultralight Quad Fans Rejoice!
The whole quad racing industry has shifted towards ultralight setups this year. Well have no fear, PROton can do ultralite too! Being so adaptable the PROton in skeleton mode can be built into a lean, mean, screaming machine.
This build shown below is just 215g. I could have gotten it to 210g if I had gone with a 20x20mm stack. But I decided to go with the Cicada 30A F4 AIO that I use in the Phuket.
*Prototype v4 shown. The final production version will have some slight differences. Dont worry, they are all good changes.
215g PROton Build List
- FlightClub PROton in skeleton mode
- Cicada 30A F4 AIO
- Hyperlite 2204 2522kv (Being so light, I should have gone with at least 2722kv)
- FrSky XM+ rx
- FOXEER Arrow Micro v2
- TBS Unify RACE vtx
- Lumenier AXii U.FL antenna
The standard PROton skeleton frame will either come with 25mm or 28mm standoffs. Because I’m using the AIO it let me build a super low profile quad so I’m using 20mm standoffs. Because of the camera 20mm is the lowest you can go. The stack is actually lower!
The Skeleton will come with custom camera mounts for the Micro cameras and the rear VTX antenna / rx antenna holder. This mount is designed for the Lumenier AXii U.FL antenna but it can take a regular SMA connector to accommodate any VTX antenna.
Since the last PROton update, I’ve been tweaking 🙂 Now PROton will have butter mounts like in the Tokio! Butter mounts are custom silicon molded grommets that isolate the flight controller stacks from any vibrations from the motors. The butter mounts squash any vibrations before they reach the flight controller.
It’s Time, PROton is Ready!
In collaboration with some of the fastest pilots in the world, EnvyAstro, SedHendo and some other pilots I can’t mention, PROton is ready. Every single cut, curve, line or hole has a purpose on the PROton. Nothing is done for cosmetic purposes. No waves, flames, spikes or fins will make it on this frame. Everything has been tweaked and tested to make sure everything works. PROton is currently on the 4th prototype. After hundreds of packs, crashes and tweaks…PROton is ready to be released.
PROton Pre-Orders will start November 17th at Midnight.
That’s right! PROton pre-orders will start November 17th at midnight for only $50! To sweeten the deal all pre-order PROtons will come with 5 arms instead of 4. PROton Canopy or Skeleton, it doesn’t matter. They are both $50. Order 1 or order 10!
After the pre-orders, PROtons will be $65. Why so cheap you ask? I want PROtons everywhere! Don’t mistaken the low cost for a cheap frame. Forget about the price, there’s not a frame on the market right now that can even compare with all the features that are loaded in the PROton. Not even close.
Set an alarm, make a post-it or tie a ribbon around your wrist. Do not miss out on the $50 pre-order limited deal. Tokio pre-orders sold out in less than 6 hours. We should have enough PROtons to last more than 6 hours but they will sell out quickly.
Go to the PROton pre-orders page and enter your email to be notified the moment pre-orders go live. Don’t worry, we hate spam too. Your email will only be used to notify you when orders start. See you on the podium!
