AstroX has given the tried and true AstroX X5 frame their signature “silky touch” - a special coating that gives the carbon fiber a unique feel!
The design itself is based on the 3:4:5 geometry, which has proven to be very successful for freestyle frames. A vertical plate has been added near the rear of the frame, allowing you to easily and cleanly mount the receiver and/or video transmitter in a convenient location. The front of the top plate has slots to allow for various HD camera mounts, and the FPV camera mount is easily compatible with most cameras currently on the market. A custom AstroX V2 PDB is included, as well as an XT-60 connector, a buzzer and a special mount to fix the battery connector to the top plate for easy access.
The structural design is similar to the Alien, in that the replaceable arms are firmly supported between the bottom plate and a cross brace. This ensures superior rigidity and crash resistance even in tough conditions. The screws that hold the arms in place are fastened with steel press-fit nuts, making arm replacements a breeze!
The design of the Korean frame has been carefully tweaked to maintain its visual appeal without sacrificing performance. All of the high-quality carbon fiber has been chamfered, sanded and clear coated. This extensive procedure makes the AstroX “Silky” version stand out in a sea of carbon fiber frames! And not only that but designer Boohwan Jeon opted for anodized aluminum standoffs in the signature AstroX Blue color!
