Ever imagine how much smaller the famous ZMR frame can get? Recenly I received a kit from FPVModel – the ZMR150 micro quad, and it’s dinky!
I thought ZMR180 mini quad frame was small enough, but FPVModel just didn’t want to stop there and made an even smaller frame – the ZMR150 – a 150mm motor to motor distance size frame, and it runs 3″ props.
Get the ZMR150 Frame from FPVModel, Or the ARTF Kit.
Here is a comparison of the ZMR250 and a ZMR150 frame side by side.
Package and Frame assembly
The Frame kit is pretty basic, comes with a Matek PDB (see full spec), top plate (1.5mm) and bottom plate (3mm), which has a unibody design.
Aluminium standoffs are very tiny, and it uses M2 bolts (2mm).
Very simple to put this frame together, probably only took me 5 mins :D
Whole frame only weights 51 grams.
I see on this frame there are 2 cutouts like the ZMR250 for the FPV camera mounts. I thought will the regular camera mount plate fit, the answer is no, the frame is too low :D good try though.
Here is the manual for the Matek Mini Power hub PDB:
If you are going for the ATF Kit, you will see the components they recommend to go with this frame.
Dragonfly MC1306 3100 motors
I haven’t had the chance to test the thrust and power data yet, but will probably make a separate post on that subject.
You can buy these motors separately.
Hawkeye mini 5.8Ghz 200mW VTX
I really like this VTX, works pretty well, and it’s got a antenna extension lead rather than a antenna connector.
For full spec check out this page.
HMCAM700 520TVL FPV Camera
Very tiny CMOS camera that has a 120 degree wide angle. It weights only 4g and only take 5V, which is perfect as the VTX has a 5V output for the camera.
Very easy to assembly, decently carbon fibre given the light weight of the quad it should hold up well against crashes.
However the bolts provided are too short, I would want to see them 2-3mm longer.
I emailed FPVModel see if the motors can stand 4S but I have yet to get an answer. I think this quad is going to be lots of fun on 4S 1000mah LiPo :)
Oscar, how are the thrust tests coming along? Do they work 4s with 3″ props?
I don’t really use 3s , so don’t have any.
I didn’t have time to test these motors, and i no longer have them.
did you had the chance to test the above motors (Dragonfly MC1306 3100)
I made this setup with other motors on 3030/3045 as cannot fit nothing bigger and don’t have that much power.
The only tests i find are for 5030….
yes i will be testing this motor in the coming weeks.
Seeing your review of the stealth frame https://oscarliang.com/xd-stealth-150-frame/, I am wondering whether I should just use this frame “upside down” to be able to use 4 inch props on 4s.
The advantage over the stealth would be all carbon construction, maybe some components like the video Tx could be fitted on top between the motors.
you could if you want :)
