Overview:

The ApexDC EVO is a variation on the typical 'dead cat' frame which we have modified to keep the front and rear motors aligned, allowing us to maintain the much loved compressed-x geometry in the motor layout.

This ensures the frame remains balanced and flight characteristics are not compromised, unlike the classic 'dead cat' design which moves the rear motors closer to the body and severely impacts handling.

By modifying only the upper and lower main plates we retained full compatibility with regular Apex arms, using standard 5" arms at the front and standard 6" arms at the back.  There are no props in shot of DJI HD flight cameras and for slower cinematic flying it's now possible to run GoPro angles lower than ever before.

 ** Frame Only, Motors, camera ESC etc NOT included **

CAMERA MOUNT
Included with the Apex EVO is a newly redesigned aluminium camera mount and 3D printed isolation inserts. This keeps the camera firmly locked in place and reduces vibrations, whilst ensuring it is electrically isolated from the frame.

APEX ARM DESIGN
The arms of an FPV frame are the key structural component which translate the thrust from the motors to the majority of the mass in the aircraft, which is secured to the body of the frame. The design of the arms and how they are attached to the body is one of the most vital aspects that influences the performance of an FPV frame.

There are multiple problems which can occur with existing arm designs which can lead to poor performance, difficulty tuning and added cost. The Apex addresses all of these problems with a simple and unique new design that eliminates all arm slop and drastically increases durability.

PERFECTLY SYMMETRICAL
Symmetrical arms make it possible to pocket one side of the part without introducing the need for distinct left and right arms, making you require more spare parts. We use a pocket instead of a hole under the motor to increase durability and we embed a press nut to simplify attachment and avoid clearance issues under your stack.

SIMPLE MAINTENANCE
Flight electronics are mounted to the upper main plate using countersink bolts. This completely decouples the arm attachment from the electronics mounting. Arms can be replaced using two bolts without any disturbance to your stack.

SHOULDER BOLTS AND THREADLOCKER
Our custom machined shoulder bolts act as a solid steel pin through the arm which eliminates slop and tolerance issues. The precision shaft passing through the arm removes all side-loading of the carbon laminations on to the chisel-like threads of a regular bolt. Factory added threadlocker and custom aluminium cone washers spread the load of the clamping force and ensure the bolts will not vibrate loose.

KEY TO THE APEX
At the apex of a masonry arch a keystone locks all the stones in to position and allows the arch to bear weight and be self supporting. A keystone is a hallmark of strength and good design, the Apex FPV frame is no different and the carbon key sits at the heart of the frame to distribute forces applied to the arms.
