Top 5 Best Mini Quad Frames in March 2017

We get many requests to recommend mini quad parts, but It’s impossible for someone to review every product in this hobby. So we have created these “Top 5 Best” lists to feature some of the most recommended products by our community through polls and reviews. This time we have 5 mini quad frames that we’d like to feature in March 2017.

We have not tried all the following frames at These frames are featured here because they scored top votes in our recent Facebook group poll (group: Multicopter International), as well as considerations on the features of the frames.

Learn about the basics of mini quad frames to keep yourself informed. For the latest popular racing drone products, check out our “Top 5 Best” series.

DemonRC Fury

The DemonRC (DRC) Fury aims to be lightweight (72g assembled) and strong (4mm arms). Having a wheelbase of only 205mm makes it more agile than other larger 5″ frames. Arms are designed to be easily replaced at the field.


Dquad Obsession

The DQuad obsession is a pod design than combines metal with carbon fibre. It comes with a custom PDB designed specifically for the frame. The design is well thought-out, even the XT60 connector is protected with 3D printed part. The arms is possible to be replaced at the field. Easy to build, durable and looks cool!


PiratFrames Sloop

SimpPiratFrames Sloop has a simple unibody design. It’s not the lightest or smallest frame out there, but the long and roomy body gives builders a much easier time to fit all the components in there. The golden hardware that comes with the frame are also eye-catching.


Armattan Chameleon

Armattan Chameleon mini quad frame

Another great frame in this list that uses a lot of aluminium in the design. The Chameleon has a low profile top plate that allows you to mount the battery on top. It brings the center of mass down closer to the center of gravity, reducing moment of inertia. The camera cage not only provides protection to the FPV camera, but also allows you to mount your HD camera on top. The rear of the frame features a special aluminium plate for mounting your VTX SMA connector.

Stanton Frames TSX200

Simple and minimalist frame. It comes with a simple PDB that provides filtered 5V/12V power. It’s a true X design, each arm only requires 1 bolt so replacing them can be really quick.

    The Stanton TSX200 has arms that interlock at the centre, which is why it needs only one nut. It’s a very clever design.
