Snap kit designed for the Catalyst Machineworks Merica 5 Inch Hybrid frame, fitting all Merica variants with at least five inch prop clearance, and sporting a sixty-five degree fixed camera angle. Quarter mile weapon. Accomodation for the intercontinental ballistic sprint, by Snap Aerial Silhouettes.
Super-resolution, semi-flex TPU canopy construction, advanced material boasts a 580% elongation coefficient, 95A shore hardness rating, and peerless, opaquely reflective finish; less jello than nylon, and no cracking in cold weather.
Proven Bleeding Shell passively retractable camera mount, which lets the camera slide back into the protected area of the canopy during direct hits and hard crashes, tested for absolutely no unintended camera slippage.
Turtle mode without fin or stick, due to higher ground contact made possible by proprietary hull geometry.
Stainless steel internal threads for far greater aerodynamic efficacy than traditional exposed-hardware designs, while still mounting using the frame's stock hardware.
Onboard, internally wired SUNON MagLev server fan with high speed Vapo-Bearing and accompanying Tiny's Pico Rainbow RGB LEDs (digitally addressable as a three node string).
THIS KIT ASSUMES THE USE OF ZIPTIE/ARM MOUNTED RADIO SIGNAL RECEIVER ANTENNAE, AND LIGHTWEIGHT CIRCULAR POLARIZED OR LINEAR VIDEO TRANSMISSION ANTENNAE.
THIS KIT DOES NOT ACCOMODATE FLIGHT CONTROLLER MOUNTING IN THE CANOPY ITSELF; 20X20 STACK (TO FIT INSIDE TOP PLATE VIDEO TRANSMITTER CUTOUT) OR INDIVIDUAL ARM MOUNTED ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLERS (WITH FLIGHT CONTROLLER MOUNTED TO BOTTOM PLATE) MUST BE USED.
The red wire from the canopy goes to 5V on the flight controller, the black wire from the canopy goes to ground on the flight controller, and the yellow wire from the canopy goes to the LED signal output on the flight controller; the included RunCam Racer Nano should be wired according to its digital manual, using the provided JST pigtail.
Canopy mounts using the frame's stock hardware. Apply medium strength threadlocker to camera screws, but DO NOT apply any threadlocker to canopy mounting screws.
Only guaranteed to fit the included RunCam Racer Nano camera, which features an extremely low profile and mass, state of the art gesture control, and optical performance equal to that of the RunCam Racer 2.
