This frame was designed as a 4” platform but then pulled out to 5” because it would support it nicely. It’s really intended for 4” but it’s quite nice as a very light 5” platform as well. The 5” version is discouraged for beginners because it is not as durable.

The Fouride is intended to be used with analog video or the DJI/Caddx Vista system with the regular full size DJI camera (Nebula, nano and micro size cameras fit as well). It’s a low weight platform which takes advantage of the current and future line of electronics. The layout of the frame consists of two side by side stack platforms that fit both 20x20 and Toothpick/whoop boards with a low 15mm build height. This low build height is intended to keep the weight distribution tight.





In designing the setup around the current and future micro electronics, we discovered an annoying design limitation. The most obvious design layout would be to stack all the electronics. The dilemma there is that either the battery is slung under the frame or hoisted way up in the air above the electronics. Neither of which is preferred for flight performance (racers excluded). The other slightly less obvious option is to spread out the electronics side by side. This allows for a really nice and tight weight distribution and CG, but results in a fuselage that's a bit longer than desired. So we went with 4” arms rather than a 3" because it just makes more sense.

With 4” props, you barely see the tips of the blades in the DJI camera. With 3” props, you don’t see the blades at all. There is a mounting platform for a GoPro on top which is the same platform as the CineGlide and CineSplore as well.

Solid, clean build

This was my first 4-inch build, wanting something that could be punchy but not cover a lot of ground since i fly mostly in the city. Easy to assemble, this was probably my 8th or 9th build, so not a ton of experience. Holds a 20x20 NBD stack snugly, had to use slightly longer M2s to mount it instead of what was in the kit. A really solid feeling compact build.

Nice frame.

Super light weight solid frame. Had two 4" for a while and loved it before going a bit heavier 5" setup.

Four-tastic!!

Let me tell you, I built this thing using two analog board stacks and everything fits perfectly. Definitely not a beginner build, but the design is truly refined! I still fly a Hero session and the 3450Kv motors on 4S. It's really made me wonder if I need to sell all my 5" quads and just move to 4 inch!

First 5” Hd-zero build

Using this frame for a hd-zero build and trying to make it within the 250g weight limit here where I am. I like the 2 whoop mount on the frame as I am using a hd-zero whoop board. Still a work in progress. Overall glad I got this frame.

nice frame

nice frame. great way to repurpose some 2203/4 motors and a vista :-) I dont fly it with a session, I have the higher kv version of the motors (3450) and use a 3s 1000mah and also 4s 1300mah (80% MOTOR limit) and its a great quad. I think if I didn't already have the 2203/4 motors, I would have preferred a 3" Toothfairy, though. Either way, if you are looking for a decent 4" frame, this is basically a mini "Prototype 5" frame.
